Red Hat launches the Teiid data integration project

Red Hat has announced the official launch of the Teiid data virtualization system project in the community. Teiid is the first open source community project that aims to deliver Enterprise Information Integration (EII) with both relational and XML data virtualisation, according to the company. “When Red Hat acquired MetaMatrix in April 2007, we committed to releasing the data services technology in the open source community and Teiid is the result of that promise,” said Craig Muzilla, vice president of middleware business at Red Hat. “The demand for applications and services leveraging the data stores of a typical organisation never ends. But now, enterprises have a choice between expensive, proprietary data services and an enterprise-class open source platform at a fraction of the cost.”

Most open source data integration technologies centre on physically moving or copying data to locations. Teiid bucks this trend by focusing on data virtualisation, which enables real-time access to data across heterogeneous data sources without copying or moving the data from the systems of record. Its Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) and Web Services interfaces are designed to provide straightforward integration with both custom and COTS applications.
