Presto ODBC JDBC Drivers

Light-up features in your analytic application of choice by connecting to your Presto data with the Simba Presto ODBC and JDBC connectors with SQL Connector. Use SQL to access data via Presto from analytic applications such as Microsoft Excel, Power BI, SAP Cloud for Analytics, QlikView, Tableau, and more.

Presto, a powerful distributed in-memory query engine, provides a common SQL Engine for accessing data where it lives whether it be Hadoop, Cassandra, Kafka, MySQL, and more.

With the Simba Presto ODBC and JDBC drivers with SQL Connector, analytic applications capable of utilizing ODBC and JDBC to connect to data sources can connect to Presto, and take advantage of a modern query and execution engine designed to support the SQL those applications depend on.

Simba Presto ODBC and JDBC connectors let organizations connect their BI tools to Presto. Presto provides an ANSI SQL query layer and also exposes the metadata information through an ANSI SQL standard metadata database called INFORMATION_SCHEMA. Simba Presto ODBC & JDBC connectors leverage INFORMATION_SCHEMA to expose Presto’s metadata to BI tools as needed.
