The SQL Server ODBC driver also enables your solution to take advantage of parallel features in SQL Server, increasing the transparency of the integration.For example, you secure the Oracle database connection with Oracle Advanced Security.
The SQL Server ODBC driver should work with DG4ODBC on any recent Linux distribution: Debian, Mandrake, Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL), Red Hat, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), SUSE and Ubuntu.
The SQL Server ODBC driver is also available for 32-bit and 64-bit AIX, HP-UX and Solaris platforms.
For example, by handling the prerequisite client configuration for database mirroring (SQL Server’s high availability feature), the driver enables you to maintain SQL Server availability in your data integration solution.
Oracle’s heterogeneous connectivity solution enables client applications to take advantage of Oracle’s underlying security features.
The SQL Server ODBC driver also supports earlier (SQL Server 7.0) versions of the database.
