CloverDX 5.4 continues to improve containerized deployment and brings support for orchestrated architectures (e.g. Kubernetes). For the support staff, we’ve looked at improvements in incident diagnostic and robustness.
Introduction of Docker in the previous release was the first piece of a bigger puzzle of the containerized architectures. In this version we’ve added support for an orchestration layer, namely Kubernetes.
We’ve prepared a sample architecture (available here) that contains everything you’ll need to take the first steps — CloverDX itself, a database, an API gateway and monitoring tools — all packed into a fully operational end-to-end integration platform that you can further extends to your needs.
We’ve been pushing CloverDX to be your platform of choice for ever more complex scenarios. With this release we’re introducing yet another set of improvements in Server maintenance:
Executions History can now display a much larger execution hierarchy without slowdowns in the UI
Archivator runs much faster with fewer system resources
Server now stores JVM’s garbage collector logs for later diagnostics
We’ve added a brand new “performance” log that shows utilization of resources such as CPU, memory, GC and threads
These changes give you finer control and diagnostic options for large tasks involving complex transformation processes and large volumes of data.
CloverDX is now able to automatically create new users who successfully authenticate over LDAP and SAML. This means you can now fully manage your user base outside of CloverDX without the need to explicitly add or remove users in the Server Console.
Security is a concern for all of us and this time we’ve looked at key management, also in line with container deployment and orchestration.
CloverDX now support OpenSSH configuration files natively so that you can store secrets in a safe location and better manage their lifecycle.
The dynamic SQL Metadata Editor (introduced in 5.3) now shows a useful preview.
The CTL (Transform) Editor shows more information about function parameters in the code assist dropdown. We believe both of these changes will help you work much faster.
Added support for Tableau .hyper format
Automatic configuration import during startup
Create/upload of individual files in Sandboxes module
