Red Hat launches JBoss Data Virtualization 6
Data integration platform said to improve ‘simplicity, speed, control, compliance’
Open source solutions provider Red Hat, Inc today launched JBoss Data Virtualization 6, a platform for data integration designed to turn big data into actionable information.
Organisations normally store data in various big data and traditional stores such as Apache Hadoop, relational databases and NoSQL stores such as MongoDB. Such setups lead to challenges in making the data accessible to external applications, such as analytics and business intelligence software. JBoss Data Virtualization allows simultaneous access to different stores.
Red Hat is collaborating with Apache Hadoop developer and provider Hortonworks to combine the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) with JBoss Data Virtualization, which according to Red Hat, is intended to streamline the creation of virtual data models for access by external applications.
"Information management and delivery are critical functions of modern business operations," said Craig Muzilla, senior vice president, Applications Platform Products Group, Red Hat.
"If organisations are going to have any success translating meaningless data into actionable information, integration tools like JBoss Data Virtualization play a key role in making the data readily accessible."
