Simba’s Cassandra ODBC and JDBC Drivers offer direct, universal ODBC 3.8 and JDBC 4.0 and 4.1 data access to Cassandra data stores via Cassandra’s native API, with no extraction. And the Simba Technologies Apache Cassandra ODBC Driver is the first to extend Cassandra data access to the Mac platform.

SQL for NoSQL: The Simba Technologies Cassandra ODBC and JDBC Drivers enable direct SQL query translation to the Cassandra Query Language (CQL), offering users unparalleled performance at scale. The built-in Collaborative Query Execution (CQE) passes down filters and aggregations to provide high-performance access to Cassandra.

Simba’s ODBC and JDBC connectors allow to you to make quick analytic insights and to leverage back end data source high performance calculation capabilities for your favorite BI client.

The Apache Cassandra database is the right choice when you need scalability without compromising performance. Cassandra’s support for replicating across multiple data centers provides lower latency and higher availability for users. Complying with the latest ODBC 3.8 data standard, the driver adds important functionality such as asynchronous execution.
