Red Hat Summit 2017 – Planning your JBoss labs

This year in Boston, MA you can attend the Red Hat Summit 2017, the event to get your updates on open source technologies and meet with all the experts you follow throughout the year.

It’s taking place from May 2-4 and is full of interesting sessions, keynotes, and labs.

Winner! Best Data Virtualization Solution

Database Trends and Applications (DBTA) announced its data solutions winners earlier this August, and one of our middleware products was honored! Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization won best data virtualization solution.

DBTA’s awards were reader’s choice, meaning that it was the community of data virtualization users who voted for JBoss Data Virtualization. According to DBTA’s announcements, the hallmarks of a winning data virtualization solution include three characteristics:

  • Agile development
  • A secure virtual data layer
  • Real-time data access and provisioning

It’s a combination of security and speed.

Data virtualization provides a layer over existing, separate data sources, which integrates the data in those sources without have to manually copy or convert that data. Data virtualization can support a lot of potential business benefits, including reducing duplicate data, improving data consistency, and reducing architectural complexity. Data virtualizations can provide that comprehensive view and access to data, without having to replace existing applications.
