  • Insights 1.8 Released!

    Posted by eroche on December 18, 2023 at 12:00 am

    We are pleased to announce the release of Insights 1.8, which focuses on expanding the ways in which our users can ingest and stream data.  Key developments in this area include:

    • Parquet readers with filewatch and pattern matching capabilities to poll object storage and ingest files from each of the three major cloud providers; AWS, Azure and GCP  (Azure and GCP support are new).
    • A Python interface enables Python applications to publish data to RT, the Reliable Transport streaming message service.
    • A REST interface provides similar ability to ingest and publish data over HTTP.
    • Users can now stream from a pipeline to a client application via WebSockets. This includes the ability to stream both snapshots as well as real-time data. This feature is supported for kdb Insights only at this time.
    • Data in transit within kdb Insights Enterprise can now be encrypted, providing enhanced security.

    Additional functionality for easier deployment and operation includes:

    • Support for On-Prem deployment of kdb Insights Enterprise using OpenShift.
    • Improvements to client terraform scripts include Kubernetes 1.27 support, CSP-aware logging defaults and additional VPN/Bastion connection options.
    • CLI level improvement includes browser-based authentication, token caching, support profiles for easier streamlined access over multiple environments.
    • A new Database Preview API that enables users to query a sample of their data from the database to use for understanding their data/schema, construct more complex queries or even build visuals on the full data set.

    Detailed release notes for kdb Insights Enterprise are available here, and for kdb Insights here.


    Best Regards,

    Eoin Roche | Head of Product Adoption, KX
