OpenLink Unleashes Update To Semantically-Aware Column-Store
For Handling Big Data Challenges
Virtuoso 7.2 Enhances Massively Scalable Hybrid (Relational
Tables & RDF Property/Predicate Graphs) DBMS For Secure,
High-Performance, Big Data Management and Integration
BURLINGTON, MA. -- February 17, 2015 -- OpenLink Software, Inc.,
today unveiled the latest, most advanced version of the Virtuoso
hybrid data management system, further expanding their
cost-effective, secure, cross-platform, high-performance, and
massively-scalable solution to the challenge of performing and
disseminating insightful analytics over Big, Small, and Diverse
Data. This latest product release delivers record setting
performance, scalability, and agility, alongside unrivaled security
Party Storage Services Integration
-- 3rd Party Storage
Services (e.g., Dropbox, Amazon S3, Microsoft OneDrive, Google
Drive, Box, Rackspace, etc.) are mountable and un-mountable
(asynchronously) to Virtuoso's HTTP/WebDAV based File Server layer.
This feature enables end-user level exploitation of open standards
for Web-scale Verifiable Identity (e.g., PKIX) that no longer
depend on domain ownership.
Loosely-coupled CSV document
-- Attachment of external, filesystem-hosted CSV
Documents to Virtuoso frees users from confinement to wholesale
import and export. Once attached, these CSV documents are treated
like native SQL Tables, thereby enabling powerful transformations
into RDF-based Linked Open Data. Net effect, enhanced data
virtualization functionality that enables powerful data integration
and transformation -- without losing the lightweight data
definition and manipulation benefits of filesystem-hosted CSV
-- Enables use of the HTTP POST
method to request asynchronous transformation services to convert a
myriad of structured data sources into RDF-based Linked Open Data,
on the fly.
-- Automatic extraction and
transformation of digital sentences (using RDF-TURTLE notation)
embedded in Email Messages, Online Discussion Posts, Tweets, Social
Media Posts (Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+), HTML Body, and Plain
Text documents, into RDF-based Linked Open Data, which is then
stored in the host Virtuoso instance. This feature provides users
with the freedom, power, and flexibility to create structured data
wherever and whenever -- as long as the target destination is a
content input control that supports the "plain/text"
-- For enhanced security, SSL/TLS version and
associated cipher selection is now configurable. Net effect, you
can now explicitly disable the use of specific SSL/TLS versions
(e.g., SSL/TLS 3.0, which is susceptible to the POODLE
"Virtuoso 7.2 continues to demonstrate OpenLink's profound
understanding of the fundamental challenges impeding the pursuit of
agility shared by individuals and enterprises alike, in regards to
big, small, disparately-located, and heterogeneously-shaped data
access, integration, and management," said Kingsley Idehen, Founder
& CEO, OpenLink Software. "As established technology innovation
leaders in these realms, none of these functionality enhancements
is delivered without paying special attention to individual privacy
and enterprise security -- alongside unobtrusive implementation,"
