SnapLogic, a provider of enterprise cloud integration tools, announced new enterprise platform features intended to help lower the effort to integrate with traditional data sources. Meeting the needs of enterprise IT architects, the latest release of the SnapLogic Integration Platform provides high availability and rollback support, smarter server shutdown options, and a more intuitive interface for administrative tasks, the vendor says.
The new version SnapLogic Integration Platform includes high availability and scalability for enterprises integrating data from the cloud to on-premise systems. “This release, like most other SnapLogic releases, is for both private and public clouds,” Zeb Mahmood, principal of product management for SnapLogic, tells 5 Minute Briefing. “We are seeing enterprises adopting both types, so we do not restrict to a certain category – as you can see from recent additions to our SnapStore, which shows a mix of both.”
The new release also increases the availability of connections to on-premise data sources. SnapLogic now supports multiple active servers, maintaining a complete mirror image of integration metadata across all servers at all times. If one server is unreachable, another can automatically take over until the issue is resolved.
The updated release is also intended to help manage the Big Data tsunami now sweeping enterprises. “The requirements of integrating with cloud-based systems are unlike anything that most IT organizations have seen in the past, because of the three 'Vs' of data – velocity, volume and variety,” says Mahmood. “Data is not batched any more, it streams, and businesses want to consume data in real time or near-real-time. In addition, much more data is generated and captured compared with the data volumes of traditional on-premise systems. And finally, today’s data requires IT to work with several different structures, such as RDBMS, NoSQL, XML, and JSON.”
SnapLogic Integration Platform now also includes what the vendor calls Pipeline Snapshots. To help IT architects save time, SnapLogic added the ability to rollback integration pipeline changes to a previous stable state. Users can create snapshots of their integration workflows prior to making significant changes and then recover previous versions if they encounter unanticipated issues during a rollout.
The company also says it has expanded its SnapStore ecosystem over recent months, which now offers a rich library of over 150 intelligent data connectors for applications such as Box, Eloqua, NetSuite, Oracle, Salesforce.com and SAP. New Snaps are available for Amazon S3, CheetahMail, Google Apps, Netezza, ServiceNow, SOAP, Splunk and Yelp. The SnapStore offers an open and standardized development environment, making SnapLogic an ideal integration on-ramp to the cloud.
