LDWH 2.0.53 released: Snowflake and Parquet connectors
Version 2.0.53 includes two new connectors: Snowflake and Parquet.
The cloud-based Snowflake data warehouse was already part of our development branch for some time, but now finally made it to the stable release. You can now connect Snowflake as a data source or use it as your analytical storage. If you are looking for a highly scalable SaaS storage for your Logical Data Warehouse, let us know and we can connect you to Snowflake.
Parquet is a columnar file format that is particularly popular in the Hadoop world. You can now create a Parquet data source that will allow you to write to a Parquet file from Data Virtuality via regular SQL. A statement like "SELECT * INTO parquet.destination_file_name FROM views.source" will dump the content of the view to the specified Parquet file.
A small convenience improvement was made to the Google Analytics connector. Previously, the connector always returned string values that you needed to cast manually in case of numeric return values. Now the connector finally has correct data types and will directly return e.g. integer or double for the corresponding columns, so that you don't need to manually cast them anymore.
Quick access to audit log
Data Virtuality has an audit log which tracks changes of the logical data model. This feature was already present before, but only accessible by manually querying the SYSLOG schema. Now you can right-click on a schema, view or procedure and select "Show history". This will show changes that have been applied to this object. The retention of log entries is controlled via the "Clean old histories task" system job.
