Talend, a developer and distributor of open source middleware, has announced Talend Cloud, a cloud-enabled integration platform that provides a unified integration platform for on-premise systems, cloud-based systems and SaaS applications. Based on Talend's Unified Integration Platform, it also provides a common environment for users to manage the entire lifecycle of integration processes including a graphical development environment, a deployment mechanism and runtime environment for operations and a monitoring console for management - all built on top of a shared metadata repository.
"Although cloud has become ubiquitous in today's IT deployments, many organizations are still trying to determine how to function in hybrid environments," says Bertrand Diard, co-founder and CEO of Talend. "At the same time, the data deluge is continuing and these same organizations are struggling to properly manage and integrate this information and the multiple systems that store and process it. Using Talend Cloud, customers can address these issues within a single platform that addresses a broad range of integration needs and technologies, ranging from data-oriented services to data quality and master data management, via a unified environment and a flexible deployment model."
Talend Cloud provides complete deployment flexibility of all Talend's solutions and technologies within the Unified Integration Platform, including data integration, data quality, master data management and enterprise service bus. All components can be installed transparently in the cloud, on premise, or in hybrid mode, and ensure the overall orchestration and integrity of integration processes.
Key benefits of Talend Cloud include:
- Elasticity - supports the ability to expand and contract deployments as required;
- Ubiquity - support for standard systems and protocols; the open source model makes resources easily accessible by a myriad of platforms and devices;
- Extensibility - a modular architecture that allows organizations to add, modify or remove functionality as requirements change over time;
- Security & Reliability - the ability to maintain security and reliability of integration, allowing organizations to meet customer SLAs.
Talend Cloud provides automated deployment on cloud platforms such as Amazon EC2, Cloud.com and Eucalyptus. Also included in Talend Cloud is the addition of new connectors to an already-extensive portfolio, offering native connectivity to a broad range of key cloud technologies and applications as well as the most popular SaaS applications including Salesforce.com, NetSuite, SugarCRM, BIRT OnDemand, Marketo, Amazon RDS, Amazon S3, Database.com, Hadoop, Google Applications, Google Analytics and Twitter. New connectors continue to be added on a regular basis, either by the open source community or by Talend's R&D organization. The Talend Exchange provides the latest connectors which can be downloaded and installed directly within the Talend Studio, at no per-connector cost.
