Paginator vs Jquery datatables

Because I’m dealing with some large databases, even when I apply some basic default filtering I’m often getting hundreds, if not thousands of records. The paging of results is thus an important feature and I’m wondering which of these two approaches to use. The aesthetics aren’t really much of an issue for me, I’m more concerned about performance of the UI.

We use jQuery datatables with server-side pagination. Works great for us.
