Try searching for "Connection pool" on the web. There is plenty of information on the topic.
In a nutshell, a Connection pool holds a number of database sessions which applications or processes borrow.
One advantage is that a large number of users can share a smaller number of sessions (eg. more users than the database could directly support).
Another advantage is that the process of borrowing a session is typically much faster than establishing a brand new session (i.e. improved performance).
