RainStor switched from an alternate ODBC technology to Simba’s as it offered an inclusive package of data interfaces, functionality and components within a single, flexible software license that suited their product technology plan. Simba’s solution delivered excellent performance and scalability, and supported multiple platforms that RainStor planned to add. In addition, Simba’s solution supports Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), which was another key feature for RainStor.
Simba built a custom ODBC driver and JDBC driver for RainStor using SimbaEngine ODBC SDK. RainStor’s Simba-built data connectivity solution provides scalability, broad platform support and a cost effective solution for RainStor through simple, transparent pricing and flexible licensing.
RainStor’s Simba-built ODBC driver dramatically increased the number of concurrent connections in separate threads that customers made. Notably, client-server throughput and small query roundtrip processing time delivered performance well above initial expectations.
JDBC client connectivity is delivered via the client-server component that enables high-performance connectivity between java-based BI applications and RainStor. The SimbaEngine ODBC SDK-based data connectivity solution provides RainStor with the broad client and server platform support it requires. Furthermore, Simba’s predictable product roadmap and transparent licensing make it easy for RainStor to add future functionality and additional platforms as needed. IPv6 is also fully supported within RainStor’s new ODBC and JDBC drivers.
