Turbodbc - Turbocharged database access for data scientists


Turbodbc is a Python module to access relational databases via the Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) interface. Its primary target audience are data scientist that use databases for which no efficient native Python drivers are available.

For maximum compatibility, turbodbc complies with the Python Database API Specification 2.0 (PEP 249). For maximum performance, turbodbc offers built-in NumPy and Apache Arrow support and internally relies on batched data transfer instead of single-record communication as other popular ODBC modules do.

Turbodbc is free to use (MIT license), open source (GitHub), works with Python 2.7 and Python 3.4+, and is available for Linux, OSX, and Windows.

Turbodbc is routinely tested with MySQL, PostgreSQL, EXASOL, and MSSQL, but probably also works with your database.
