LTS 2019 includes new AI-related modules that Nuxeo customers can “plug and play” to enrich their content with data from AI services and via custom models deployed on Nuxeo Online Services. This improves the findability of the documents, delivers a greater level of context and intelligence to how content can be leveraged, and also feeds additional AI algorithms to even add more insight automatically.
Nuxeo users can now benefit from our advanced metadata management capabilities, deep AI functionality, powerful search, permissions management, and more – all while transparently editing files from within the Office 365 suite. Users can click on a link from the Nuxeo Web UI, open the document from within Office 365, and edit it. Or, users can save a new document in Nuxeo from Office365.
The Nuxeo Platform can now manage binary content “in place” (i.e. content that remains stored in external ECM or EFSS systems). In addition to extending the Nuxeo content federation strategy, this enables customers to get all the benefits of a modern Content Services Platform (scale, search, workflows, automation, and permissions) without the cost and pain of forced migrations.
Enhanced Annotation Capabilities
Enhanced capabilities for annotations, including the ability for users to annotate office documents, images, videos, PDFs for review/validation processes or for media enrichment.
New Adobe CC Connector
New Adobe Creative Cloud connector, which has been rebuilt from the ground up to improve the user experience and leverage the full capabilities of Adobe CC 2018.
Pluggable Accelerated Transfer for Upload Services
Nuxeo can now be easily plugged into any direct upload service that provides file or object transfer acceleration. As a result, Nuxeo users will enjoy faster uploads of large content assets like 4K video files via Web UI (the Nuxeo Web client). Transfer acceleration is now available for AWS S3, and connections to additional services can be easily created (such as for Azure or other specialized vendors ). With the S3 implementation, upload performance improvements are typically in the range of 50% to 500%.
Supporting the Digital Workplace
Customers using Nuxeo from a mobile web browser can now start the native Nuxeo mobile app with a single click, for an optimized mobile experience. The native application improves the mobile experience by providing a native mobile look and feel, improved responsiveness, makes the best use of the available device real estate, and supports common mobile design patterns (pinch and zoom, back button navigation, multi touch).
Asynchronous Processing with Kafka
Nuxeo’s unmatched enterprise scalability gets a further boost with the addition of Kafka to the architecture. Kafka guarantees that all asynchronous jobs are queued correctly and completed more efficiently, improving overall system performance. In addition, the distributed nature of Kafka make it a perfect complement to Nuxeo’s horizontally scalable, high availability architecture.
Serverless Computing Integration
Thanks to the Amazon Lambda integration long, CPU intensive tasks can be redirected to run on Amazon's Serverless Computing infrastructure, ensuring user performance will not be compromised. A practical application of this integration is mass thumbnail generation when thousands of images are added to Nuxeo.
Elasticsearch 5 and HTTP API Support
Nuxeo supports Elasticsearch 5.6 which allows for the use of the HTTP based API to Elasticsearch and organisations can now use HTTPS to secure all communications. With this release Nuxeo can also leverage the Elasticsearch service in Amazon Web Services (AWS). Elasticsearch 5 also brings new capabilities to the Nuxeo platform.
Better User Experience
The new Web UI introduces several UX improvements for better user experience. One of them is the thumbnails grid. The media search screen now displays thumbnails that keep the original ratio of the images and displays the metadata on hover, making it easier for you to identify the image (or visual media) you are looking for.
Full MongoDB support
The Nuxeo platform can now be fully deployed on MongoDB, the industry’s leading NoSQL database. MongoDB is great for those customers looking for the ultimate in performance or simply looking to remove their dependency on SQL databases as it runs on more cost effective hardware, scales horizontally, and is designed to facilitate big data use cases.
New Web UI
Nuxeo now delivers 10 times the throughput of competing approaches and has capacity for billions of objects and an unlimited number of properties and attributes. Nuxeo also delivers cloud-grade elasticity, high availability and resiliency, and military-grade security. Most of all, it is business-first: easily configurable to each customer’s unique business processes.
Massive scalability using either NoSQL (MongoDB or Marklogic) or relational database (PostgreSQL, Oracle, MySQL, etc.)
1 billion documents benchmarked on a single cluster
6,000 queries per second benchmarked on a single cluster
Up to 30,000 documents processed per second on a single MongoDB-backed cluster
NoSQL databases integration has been a strategic initiative for the past two years at Nuxeo. New enhancements on the MongoDB native integration have allowed the Nuxeo Platform to reach yet another level of performance. Using MongoDB as a data storage backend allows ultra performant application deployments for giant and complex data models, with many concurrent read/writes or geographically distributed systems with integrated failover.
The Marklogic persistence engine is now also available featuring transactions, clustering, high availability and replication.
Nuxeo Edge Cache removes the need to download the same file again and again at a given site when several users want to access the same content, making it a great addition to large cloud deployments or for customers with multiple remote sites. Organizations can reduce download time up to 95% and bandwidth consumption up to 90% while keeping digital assets safe at all times even when cached.
Nuxeo Platform now integrates with Elasticsearch 2.x, offering new indexation and aggregation possibilities for your stored content.
The Nuxeo Mobile App for iOS provides a seamless experience on the main features, such as search, browsing, and working on your favorite assets. It allows you to authenticate against a Nuxeo server, browse and search, identify as favorites, and preview assets in the Nuxeo repository.
