By CIOReview | Monday, April 4, 2016

PALO ALTO, CA: Data virtualization software provider, Denodo has recently released the new version of its Denodo Platform. Based on “fast data” strategy, the version 6.0 will focus on delivering breakthrough performance in big data implementations, logical data warehouses, and operational scenarios.

The solution offers data virtualization in the cloud and accelerates the use of data by business users with self-service data discovery and search for fast-track adoption. It helps organizations in taking quick decisions with real-time performance, thereby achieving the shortest time-to-data with on-demand product availability, and improve business-user productivity with unconstrained access to data. “Denodo 6.0 sets the gold standard for data virtualization software. Its Dynamic Query Optimizer is the only cost-based optimization engine to dynamically optimize queries at the data virtualization layer, which boosts performance, especially in big data scenarios,” says Ravi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer, Denodo.

Furthermore, Denodo Platform 6.0 provides advanced optimization techniques for big data to minimize network traffic; and the Dynamic Query Optimizer automatically implements the “move processing to the data” paradigm. The optimizer determines the best query execution plan to deliver optimum performances, considering data source statistics and indexes, as well as the special characteristics of big data sources. The updated platform provides data virtualization solution to be provisioned as a virtual image on Amazon AWS Marketplace and web-based user interface with Google-like search capabilities for both data and metadata. The interface allows data discovery through the graphical representation of data lineage.

“The demand for direct access to information through data virtualization has grown significantly as traditional batch cycles of ETL are not able to keep pace with business needs,” says Mark Smith, CEO and Chief Research Officer, Ventana Research.
