The Simba Cassandra ODBC Driver with SQL Connector is the most advanced ODBC driver available for direct SQL access to Apache™ Cassandra™ database clusters.
The Simba Cassandra ODBC Driver with SQL Connector embeds Simba’s SQL Engine technology. It directly connects to data via Cassandra’s native Application Programming Interface (API). Simba’s solution enables standard SQL-92 access directly to data—no data extraction—delivering full application functionality and real-time analytic capabilities to users. The solution is backed by Simba’s reputation as the world’s leading independent expert in ODBC development.
Built upon the SimbaEngine SDK driver development framework—the industry’s leading ODBC 3.52 toolkit for high-performance ODBC driver development—the Simba Cassandra ODBC Driver with SQL Connector complies with the latest ODBC 3.52 data standard and adds important functionality such as Unicode and 32- and 64-bit support for high-performance, distributed computing environments.
The Simba Cassandra ODBC Driver with SQL Connector is the only direct, universal ODBC 3.52 data access solution for Apache Cassandra that works. No other Big Data ODBC driver is as advanced or BI ready.
Initially co-developed by Microsoft® and Simba Technologies in 1992, ODBC is SQL’s flagship API. It is the standard API used by popular applications like Alteryx®, Microsoft Excel®, MicroStrategy®, SAP Crystal Reports® and Tableau®.
The Simba Cassandra ODBC Driver with SQL Connector leverages Simba’s deep ODBC and SQL expertise to add SQL capabilities to Cassandra for comprehensive BI reporting. Simba’s SQL Engine embedded within the connector provides query capability by connecting directly to Cassandra’s native API. Simba SQL Engine’s built-in Collaborative Query Execution (CQE) passes down filters and aggregations to provide high-performance access to Cassandra. Since Cassandra is schema-less, a mechanism within the SQL Connector allows users to define schemas on the fly for use by the ODBC 3.52 driver. Any traditional, SQL-based BI or analytics tool can easily connect and quickly add value without any extra development effort.
The Simba Cassandra ODBC Driver with SQL Connector is the market’s premier solution for direct, SQL BI connectivity to Apache Cassandra database clusters. It delivers extreme performance, provides broad compatibility and ensures full functionality for users analyzing and reporting on Big Data.
