Teiid 8.2 CR1 Posted And More

We're closing in on our next release with Teiid 8.2 CR1 now available for deployment on AS7 7.1.1-Final. New features include: 
  • TEIID-2269 Vault Support - The transport's keystore and truststore passwords are now supported through vault based passwords.
  • TEIID-1064 Google Spreadsheet Support - there is now support for querying Google Spreadsheets via Teiid. See the Reference and Admin Guides for more.
  • TEIID-1241 WSDL backed WS Translator - a web services data source can be configured to access a single server and point based upon a specific WSDL.
In total we have addressed over 100 issues (which is now common for a point release). Please ensure that all of your issues have been addressed satisfactorily as we likely release a CR2 before proceeding to final.  

The new Google spreadsheet support, which was an excellent contribution from Red Hatter's Filip Nguyen and Filip Elias, will hopefully be broadened into other Google services over time.

We're also looking at numerous doc clean-ups especially to our examples and quick starts.  You can also assist with the docs via comments or since document editing moderation is turned on, you can submit changes directly.

And finally if you're using Designer or new to Teiid in general, community member Gioppo Luca has been working on tutorials using the latest Teiid Designer release version 7.8 with Teiid 8.1.

Teiid Runtimes Explained

If you have been following Teiid lately we have been going through a whole lot of renovations. Yes, renovations or reorganization or refactoring or whatever you want to call it. Basically, we are making Teiid more modular with fewer dependencies that can be used by however your use case dictates rather than use it as one monolith application deployed into WildFly JEE Application Server. There is nothing wrong in using Teiid as server model, but with the proliferation of container-based workloads and cloud-based architectures, the previous server-based model does not work or simply won't scale. So, we needed to think of alternatives, thus Teiid team introduced a couple different versions modular Teiid what we are calling as "Teiid Runtimes".

Note that in these modular Teiid runtimes, not all the features you were used to using in Teiid Server model may not be there but you will have extensions to add in those that are most appropriate for your domain. If you are looking …

Teiid Platform Sizing Guidelines and Limitations

Users/customers always ask us about the sizing of their Data Virtaulization infrastructure based on Teiid or the JDV product from Redhat. Typically this is very involved question and not a very easy one answer in plain terms. This is due to fact that it involves taking into consideration questions like:
What kind of sources that user is working with? Relational, file, CRM, NoSQL etc.How many sources they are trying to integrate? 10, 20, 100?What are the volumes of data they are working with? 10K, 100K, 1M+?What are the query latency times from the sources? How you are using Teiid to implement the data integration/virtualization solution. What kind of queries that user is executing? Even small federated results may take a lot of server side processing - especially if the plan needs tweaking.Is materializing being used?Is query written in optimal way?and so on..Each and every one of the question affects the performance profoundly, and if you got mixture of those then it become that much…
