The mxODBC Zope DA allows you to easily connect your Zope installation to just about any database backend on the market today, giving you the reliability of the commercially supported eGenix.com product mxODBC and the flexibility of the ODBC standard as middle-tier architecture.
Unlike Zope's ZODBC Zope DA, the mxODBC Zope DA works on Windows XP/NT/2000/98/95, Linux and Solaris using the same interface on all platforms.
The mxODBC Zope DA implements thread-safe connection pooling and multiple physical connects per logical Zope connection. You can safely run Z SQL Methods in parallel, achieving a much better performance than ZODBC Zope DA or similar Zope database adapters under heavy load. This makes it ideal for deployment in Zope Clusters and Zope hosting environments where stability and high performance are a top priority.
