The Fastest Databases Need the Fastest Drivers

CData Partners with Redis Labs to Introduce New Drivers for ODBC, JDBC & ADO.NET

Today we are excited to announce the availability of new ODBC, JDBC, and ADO.NET drivers for Redis, the widely adopted open source high-performance in-memory data store used as a database, cache or message broker.

The result of a collaboration with Redis Labs, the new drivers offer seamless connectivity to any data structure stored in Redis open source and Redis Enterprise through industry standard driver interfaces. The new high-performance drivers deliver out-of-the-box Redis connectivity with leading BI, ETL, Analytics, and Reporting tools.

"Through this exciting new partnership with CData, our customers get access to seamless, high performance, scalable and secure integrations with leading BI solutions such as Tableau, Microsoft PowerBI and Excel." said Rod Hamlin, VP of Global Alliances and Strategic Partnerships at Redis Labs.

The new Redis Drivers are currently available in the following form factors:

  • ODBC: Unicode-enabled 32/64-bit ODBC 3.8 compliant Driver for Windows, Mac, & Linux.
  • JDBC: Pure Java Type 4/5 JDBC Drivers with JDBC 3.0 and JDBC 4.0 support.
  • ADO.NET: 100% fully-managed ADO.NET libraries with support for Entity Framework (EF 5 & 6), ADO.NET 2.0, LINQ to Datasets.

In addition, we have also released a series of platform and application adapters for Redis, including SQL SSIS Components, BizTalk Adapters, Xamarin Data Providers, PowerShell Cmdlets, Excel Add-Ins, and more. A complete listing of adapters available for Redis can be found online at

"We evaluated several solutions, and ultimately CData's complementary performance characteristics, rich query engine, and innovative design features made them an obvious choice for us to partner with."
