Click bait title, this is not a replacement for ODBC at all. It's a different protocol to fetch data.

It’s possible the author really does believe it is a replacement, having only personally used ODBC in a very limited way himself

Having used ODBC in the past, I fail to understand how this is an ODBC replacement at all.

Even the request per cell justification doesn't make any sense to Windows developers that ever done any ODBC programming.

I am not sure about that either - is he talking about SQLBindCol()?

Anyway this is only a replacement for ODBC for cherry-picked use cases - a limited subset of languages, and where the types don’t require any marshalling. If you’re operating in that kind of environment and you need absolute speed you would just use RDMA!
