Downloading the ODBC Driver to Windows¶
Qubole supports two variants of its ODBC drivers:
- Series 2.1.x (starting with version 2.1.1) is based on top of AWS SDK and hence it has inherent support for accessing AWS S3 buckets that require signature version V4.
- Series 2.2.x is based on older (1.X.X) releases and does not support accessing AWS S3 buckets that require signature version V4.

The Qubole driver is stored in publicly accessible Cloud storage, and works on all Cloud platforms (except GCP) supported ain QDS.
