Teiid 8.10 Beta1

After the year end slowdown, Teiid 8.10 Beta1 is available from the downloads and maven.  Feature highlights since Alpha2 include:
  • TEIID-2384 Geospatial Support - contributed by Tom Arnold. Adds a geometry type and several functions. See the reference for more.
  • TEIID-2816 Hbase Support - based upon the Phoenix JDBC Drirver.
We expect both of these features to evolve a little more before the final release and documentation is also pending.  Ideally we'll have a blog or two to cover the geospatial topic.

We should be back on track to have pre-releases every two weeks, so expect a Beta2 before the end of the month and a final by mid-February.  It has been determined that we'll skip the Wildfly 8 series in favor of aligning with Wildfly 9 for Teiid 9.  So we'll begin that effort sometime after the Wildfly team hits CR1.

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…

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 …
