Introducing CData Virtuality 4.6: Building CData Connectivity into the Virtuality Product

CData Virtuality 4.6

Just eight weeks following CData’s acquisition of Data Virtuality, we are excited to release CData Virtuality 4.6, a significant milestone that underscores the joint vision to dominate the data integration market.

This release includes three major achievements:

  • A framework to easily add CData Connectors into CData Virtuality
  • Integrating the first 18 CData Connectors into the product
  • Rebranding on-prem and SaaS products under CData Virtuality

Seamlessly add CData Drivers

Under the leadership of Dr. Nick Golovin, CData Sr. VP of Enterprise Data Platform, our development teams have engineered a framework that lays the foundation for seamlessly integrating any CData Driver into CData Virtuality. This enhancement significantly simplifies the addition of new connectors, and makes it possible to seamlessly integrate any of CData’s 300+ connectors into the product. Connectors that already exist in the CData Driver portfolio can now be integrated in just a few days.

“We are very excited to introduce the first set of CData Drivers in CData Virtuality,” said Golovin. “It was crucial for us to not only announce our strategic partnership with CData, but also to demonstrate the tangible results of collaboration. This addition will be particularly beneficial for existing CData Virtuality customers and prospects, as they can now enjoy the extensive connectivity that CData offers.”

First results: 18 connectors added in under two months

CData Virtuality 4.6 now features connectivity to the following sources using CData Driver technology:

  • Amazon DynamoDB
  • Azure Analysis Services
  • CData Connect Cloud
  • CosmosDB
  • ElasticSearch
  • Google Big Query
  • JDBC-ODBC Bridge (for on-prem Windows)
  • Microsoft Dataverse
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Neo4J
  • NetSuite
  • SAP
  • SAP BusinessOne
  • SAP ByDesign
  • SAP Concur
  • SAP Hybris
  • SQL Analysis Services

Among these, the connector to CData Connect Cloud is notable. This connector serves as an optimal starting point for our Connect Cloud customers aiming to elevate their systems to an enterprise-grade data architecture through data virtualization, facilitating seamless integration with CData Virtuality and capitalizing on existing infrastructure built with Connect Cloud.

“Some of our Connect Cloud customers have already expressed their interest in CData Virtuality,” said Mike Albritton, CData Sr. VP of Cloud. Making these connectors available so quickly will enable our customers to effortlessly explore the benefits that CData Virtuality offers, and the same is true for Virtuality customers of Connect Cloud.”

Welcome to CData Virtuality

In addition to the connectors, both the SaaS and on-premises versions of CData Virtuality have been fully rebranded from Data Virtuality Platform to CData Virtuality. This rebranding effort underscores our commitment to integrating the CData Virtuality solution seamlessly into our existing product portfolio and enhancing brand recognition in the market. The new branding aligns with the strategic vision to streamline data integration processes and provide a more unified user experience.
