Red Hat has released the latest version of its JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform, designed to improve the integration of data services.
Version 5.1 includes an updated JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform with new extensions which could help facilitate integration regardless of where the data services are stored or their file type, and makes the information usable across a range of business applications and processes.
"Being able to integrate and synchronise useful information out of a wide range of disparate data sources remains a serious stumbling block to the enterprise," said Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager of the Middleware Business Unit at Red Hat.
"JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform 5.1 is a flexible, standards-based integration and data virtualisation solution built on JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform that delivers more efficient and cost-effective application and data integration techniques, allowing enterprises to more fully realise the value of their data."
The new release can virtualise a number of data stores simultaneously, Red Hat explained, and removes the need to store redundant or unused data in silos. Instead, data becomes usable across applications.
The 5.1 release includes the Apache CXF web services stack, JBoss Developer Studio 4.0 with updated SOA tooling for ESB and data virtualisation, previews of service orchestration tool WS-BPEL, and the Apache Camel Gateway integration framework.
It also includes updated certifications for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, Windows 2008 and the IBM Java Development Kit.
Red Hat added that the platform supports the JBoss Open Choice strategy, and would help avoid vendor lock-in or reliance on a "single monolithic system".
