ODBC Driver for C-ISAM and D-ISAM Files

The Easysoft ODBC-ISAM Driver provides relational, real-time, read/write access to C-ISAM and D-ISAM data for ODBC-enabled applications on Windows, UNIX and Linux. The Easysoft ODBC-ISAM Driver makes your ISAM data fully accessible from SQL, making it easy for end users to retrieve, update and analyse the data. Our customers have successfully used the Easysoft ODBC-ISAM Driver to:

Indexed Sequential Access Method (ISAM) data is organized into records that are stored sequentially in ISAM files. An index file is used to store key values that identify each record along with pointers that locate the corresponding record in the database. This speeds up data retrieval because individual records can be retrieved without having to search the entire data set. Because ISAM provides fast and cost-effective access to data without the overhead of an relational database management system (RDBMS), ISAM continues to be a viable solution for many companies.

The Easysoft ODBC-ISAM Driver reads the ISAM file definitions from an Easysoft schema file; your ISAM files and applications remain unchanged. You create the schema with the Easysoft Administrator, an easy to use, graphical, administration program provided with the driver.

The Easysoft ODBC-ISAM Driver supports Informix C-ISAM (http://www.ibm.com/software/data/informix/cisam) and Byte Designs DISAM file systems.
