SnapLogic, an integration platform as a service (iPaaS) provider, has announced the release of its Summer 2016 Elastic Integration Platform which includes new additions and updates to its library of connectors (called Snaps) and enhancements to the core platform. The release includes a new Hive Snap, new Teradata Snap, and enhanced encryption for the Hadooplex for increased data security.
SnapLogic features a hybrid cloud architecture and a library of more than 400 Snaps. Snaps are pre-built integration components that can be used to connect to a specific data source or application.
The new Hive Snap is a Snap for the Apache Hive data warehouse. According to the press release, the new Hive Snap "automates execution of Data Manipulation Language (DML) and Data Definition Language (DDL) statements for rapid queries on either Cloudera- or Hortonworks-based Hadoop clusters." The new Teradata Snap is used to connect to a Teradata database in order to perform business analytics. The SnapLogic Hadooplex is a data processing engine that is deployed on a Hadoop cluster. The SnapLogic Hadooplex has been enhanced so that data processing in Hadoop clusters is more flexible and secure.
This latest release of the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform includes updates to the Anaplan, BigQuery, Google Analytics and Netsuite Snaps to improve performance and an update to the Tableau Snap allowing users to write, format and extract data from the current version of Tableau for advanced business analytics.
