The mxODBC Zope DA is a Database Adapter (DA) specifically designed for the Plone CMS and Zope application server platform. It is built on top of the highly stable and performant mxODBC Python ODBC interface which is also sold by eGenix.com.
Unlike many other Zope Database Adapters, mxODBC Zope DA enables simultaneous queries to Z SQL Methods on which most dynamic Zope sites are built. This gives you much improved performance on high volume sites and better scalability for small to medium volume sites.
Switching to the mxODBC Zope DA usually only requires modifying the Z SQL Methods in a Plone or Zope site. Since mxODBC Zope DA works in both the Windows and the Unix world, porting whole Plone/Zope sites from Windows to Unix or vice-versa is greatly simplified. mxODBC Zope DA provides the same functionality and environment in both worlds.
