What is the best way to create a customer portal - REST vs. DB vs. other?

Hey there,

i want to create a customer portal with contact data from our Sugar CRM CE with https connection. We have one "Managed Server" with different Accounts for our hosting. In the new portal we expect a huge amount of customer at a time. So we need a way of communication with Sugar which is fast and needs as little ressources as possible. I have only two ideas, REST API and direct DB Access. I think the Rest API is not the best way, because i send data with many operations per user over the internet although Im already on the right server what affects the rate negatively, isnt it? A direct DB Access is laborious to get the required data. 

Anybody an idea or some keywords? I apologize for my bad english :)

Thank you very much
