Connect to Your Database in the Cloud

In addition to local databases, the driver now supports Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS). RDS provides a fast and easy way to configure an Oracle database in the cloud, with a variety of editions and licensing options available. The Actual Technologies ODBC driver makes it easy to connect to this cloud-based Oracle database in just a few clicks.

Easy Installation and Setup

The driver includes a setup assistant that will walk you through setting up a connection to your database. On-line help is always available to provide explanations of all parameters. For simple connections, you only need to specify 2 fields! All installation takes place on your Mac - nothing is installed on the server.

Everything you need to connect to your database is included with the installer - there's no need to install the Oracle client software or edit configuration files. You just need to know the IP address of your server and the name of your database. The driver will connect to any Oracle database version 10g Release 2 or later, running on any server platform. The only requirement is that the Oracle TNS Listener must be installed and running on the server (this is the default in most cases).

Oracle Setup

The setup assistant walks you through the process of configuring your connection. It prompts you for the information it needs.

You can refer to your database by its SID or service name - whatever method your organization has chosen.

All you need to connect to your database is the IP address of the server, the database name, your user ID and password.

The driver includes a built-in diagnostic tool to help you verify that your connection is configured properly.

Only Actual drivers give you the reliability and ease of use you've come to expect as a Mac user.
