If you choose to migrate to a different database server in the future, you can quickly and efficiently leverage the investment made in your ODBC Driver by reusing your ODBC-enabled shell with a new or upgraded database.

  • How can I take advantage of my existing database's performance strengths?

    You can do this with Simba’s unique Collaborative Query Execution feature, which allows your data store to execute any part of a SQL query.

    Simba SQL Engine’s unique Collaborative Query Execution takes full advantage of your data store’s special processing capabilities and strengths by allowing your data store to execute any part of any SQL query. Simba SQL Engine will not execute the parts of the query that your data store is handling. Instead, Simba SQL Engine will execute the remaining parts of the query and combine into a single result set its own results and the results from your data store. Many non-SQL data stores can perform table filtering or aggregation very quickly, as part of their end-user value. Collaborative Query Execution allows your data store to continue to deliver this high-value performance as part of complete SQL query processing. Pass-down filters and pass-down aggregations are two specific examples of this functionality.

    This feature can be especially valuable if the data store is being accessed across a network connection. With fewer results-set rows returned to Simba SQL Engine, the query processing doesn’t wait for data and the final result set is returned to the user sooner.

  • What is the cost of ownership?

    After your ODBC Driver, JDBC Driver, ADO.NET Provider or OLE DB Provider is complete, SimbaEngine SDK continues to save you development time. When you build a data driver using SimbaEngine SDK, you don’t have the headache of rewriting your driver every time specifications change. We provide our customers with updates that add functionality to your data driver. We provide the upgrade path to new versions of the ODBC specification, as well as to other technologies, such as JDBC, OLE DB, XML data streaming and ADO.NET.

  • How can I evaluate SimbaEngine SDK?

  • What's new for SimbaEngine SDK 9.2?

    New 9.2 Features and Functionalities

    Here are the highlights of new features and functionalities in SimbaEngine SDK 9.2:

    Kerberos
    The client and server stack in SimbaEngine SDK 9.2 now supports Kerberos for drivers developed in either C++ or Java using Simba’s ODBC and JDBC clients. This allows drivers built using the SDK to better integrate into existing enterprise security configurations, while improving the overall security of the drivers.

    Data Store Indexes Support
    The SQL Engine in SimbaEngine SDK 9.2 will be able to make efficient use of indexes present in the data stores to greatly speed up operations for joins and filtering. This means that the SQL Engine will be better able to take advantage of your data store capabilities to more efficiently compute the results of queries, which will result in less memory used and less time spent waiting for results.

    Enhanced Memory Management
    The memory management of the SQL Engine has been enhanced in SimbaEngine SDK 9.2 so that shared pool of memory is more fairly distributed among queries. This will allow the SQLEngine to handle bigger data sets and more concurrent queries.

    Batch Operation Streaming in JDBC
    The JDBC SDK now allows parameter data to be sent to data stores in chunks rather than holding them in-memory until ExecuteBatch() is called. This allows JDBC drivers built with the SDK to optimize data transfer into the underlying data store for improved data throughput.

    Rebranding Capability for Simba ODBC Client Driver
    The SDK now provides tools for you to rebrand the finished Simba ODBC Client Driver. This means the driver can be customized to use a vendor designated registry location. Error messages will also have a rebranded vendor name. No programming is required.

    Enhanced Data Types
    Previously added as an update to SimbaEngine SDK 9.1, GUID data type support is now enhanced to throughout the SDK. This includes GUID literals support. Time data type now features support for fractional seconds.

    Relaxed SQL keywords
    The SQL parser will no longer reject the use of the following SQL keywords for table and column names including aliases: YEAR, MONTH, DAY, HOUR, MINUTE, SECOND, AVG, COUNT, MAX, MIN, SUM, DATE, TIME, TIMESTAMP.

    Expanded Localization
    SimbaEngine SDK 9.2 has now expanded its list of supported Locales to 22, which includes English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Japanese. As always, you can always add additional Locale support to your own drivers without Simba’s involvement.
