    Features

    SQL Up Leveling/ Full ANSI SQL Support

    SQL up-leveling provides the capability to write a SQL statement that can be executed across multiple databases, regardless of the databases’ SQL implementation. For example, a SQL statement written against Oracle will also be interoperable with DB2.

    Encryption SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 Compliant

    We keep our SSL version upto date. Upon identification of any security vulnerability, Progress will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to address the vulnerability in accordance with the following policy

    Day 1 Support for any new versions

    Day One Support for disruptive technologies with frequent release cycles. With this strategy - the first of its kind for any data connectivity provider - Progress DataDirect on-premises ODBC and JDBC drivers will support any new versions of supported data sources.

    Cross-platform Support

    Use one ODBC driver for all versions of SQL that works across all platforms - Unix / Linux, AIX, Solaris, Windows and HP-UX .

    Advanced Connection Pooling

    Connection pooling allows you to reuse connections rather than creating a new one every time the driver needs to establish a connection to the underlying database. The DataDirect Connect Series for ODBC drivers enable connection pooling without requiring changes to your client application.
