It’s time to pat ourselves on the back. We have released DataVirtuality Version 1.9.10. A big step forward.
Every time we plan a new release, we ask ourselves: how can we make the life of our customers easier? With our release of 1.9.10, we launched some features that we want to share with you, dear followers.
Besides minor fixes, like making our product even more reliable and prettier, our two main improvements are REST Services and MemSQL.
Integrate individual data analytics tools via REST services
Representational State Transfer (REST) services allow you to access and manipulate web sources using the HTTP protocol. As an alternative to web services, the idea behind REST is to use simple HTTP, which you know from your daily web use, to query data. DataVirtuality was able to integrate REST web services, as data sources, from the very inception.
From version 1.9.10 on, DataVirtuality now uses REST services to provide data to various self-programmed analytics tools.
REST services can also be used for lots of other web services like self-developed mobile applications or cloud applications like Google Sheets.
With DataVirtuality, you can get your data and then post it into your application of choice.
THE IN-MEMORY DATABASE MEMSQL NOW CONNECTS TO DATAVIRTUALITY
An exciting new target storage is now in our portfolio: MemSQL. Why is it exciting? Because it’s a full in-memory database, which allows you to process transactions in real-time.
With DataVirtuality, you can easily connect all your data sources to MemSQL for all your data analytics with a front-end tool of your choice by using simple SQL. In the picture shown below, MemSQL is what we call the “Analytical database” in between the data source and the front-end.
What’s next? Release 1.x.x
There’s a tradition when you blow out the candles on your birthday cake – you wish for something. We took a deeeeeeep breath and … Well, you’re not supposed to talk about your birthday wishes, but no one said you can’t write about them, therefore, between us: we wish for our next release to be just as smooth as this one has been, where we’ll work on improvements for more stability and better usability.
