REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 09/25/07 -- Ipedo, a global provider of enterprise information virtualization software, today announced several major enhancements to the award-winning Ipedo XIP platform. Adding to its ability to provide fast access to distributed business information, Ipedo XIP 4.3 offers an industry-first incremental caching capability, new parameterized views for complex queries, and expanded support for MySQL Enterprise.
"Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for an organization to access all of its information virtually," said Nick Zhang, CEO of Ipedo. "We continue to add features to allow our customers to grow their deployments with the knowledge that the performance will be there."
The new enhancements are designed to increase both the performance and flexibility for large deployments, as well as accommodate the growing use of open source databases in the enterprise. Whether creating data services in an SOA, or new reports in business intelligence applications, customers can access combinations of business information using a simple templated approach, with performance levels that are transparently maintained. New features include:
-- Incremental Caching -- Ipedo XIP now allows for its cache to be refreshed incrementally, significantly reducing network traffic when a cache refresh is required. Working automatically and in the background, the new incremental caching capability watches remote data sources for changes and automatically keeps the cache in synch. -- Parameterized Views -- Parameterized views allow developers to encapsulate complex queries as parameterized templates, thereby avoiding construction of complex ad-hoc query strings at execution time. They are defined using a syntax common to prepared statements at design time, and parameter values are passed into the view at run time. Ipedo XIP performs all the optimizations on the resulting composite query tree to ensure efficient execution of the user query. -- MySQL Enterprise Server Support -- Ipedo XIP can now work seamlessly with MySQL Enterprise Server, both as a data source and as a results cache. Extensive testing on data type interoperability and performance was done to ensure optimal deployment.
Ipedo XIP is a powerful data virtualization platform that allows organizations to aggregate and present information in real time, without the need to perform bulk data movement. Ipedo's patented approach treats existing corporate databases and Web Services as a single, virtual data source that applications or users can access using industry-standard protocols. This allows users to gain customized access to the information they need, in a context that makes sense, all while leveraging existing IT investments. With its dual SQL and XQuery engines, Ipedo XIP is the only information virtualization server built from the ground up to emulate today's database architectures. Ipedo XIP also contains a powerful set of performance and security management capabilities that balance user needs with corporate policies.
Pricing and Availability
Ipedo XIP version 4.3 will be generally available in October on Microsoft Windows, Sun Solaris, and Red Hat Linux. Pricing is on a per-CPU or annual subscription basis.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
