Magnitude Simba Cassandra ODBC and JDBC connectors 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 Apache Cassandra ODBC connector is the first to extend Cassandra data access to the Mac platform.

SQL for NoSQL: Simba Cassandra ODBC and JDBC connectors 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 ODBC and JDBC connectors allow 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 connector adds important functionality such as asynchronous execution.
