    • Use the High Performing Storage API when fetching large amount of data
    • Use Service Account authentication to run the Google BigQuery jobs associated with service credentials without providing end-user’s credentials
    • Use full CRUD support with both Standard and Legacy SQL dialect


    Support for Storage API

    Read large amounts of data quickly. The driver uses the Google BigQuery high performing Storage API for Selects based on the configurable values of the Storage API Threshold and Storage API Min Page Count connection option.

    Support for Standard and Legacy SQL

    Supports both Standard and Legacy SQL dialects based on configurable values of Syntax option. Driver supports CRUD operations with internal tables and read operations with external tables by leveraging the SQL engine functionality of Google BigQuery.

    OAUTH and Service Account Support

    Authenticate users without providing user credentials using secure OAUTH 2.0 protocol and Service Account authentication. The driver provides an option to pass the service account key directly rather than relying on a disk. 

    Security and Compliance

    Protect customer-sensitive data elements (including remote credential or database pairings stored) with encryption, both at rest (AES-256) and in transit (SSL/TLS). 

    Cross-platform Support

    Use one ODBC driver for all versions of SQL across all platforms - Unix / Linux, AIX, Solaris, Windows and HP-UX - to maximize development resources.
