New York, NY / Paris, France - April 16, 2014 – Nuxeo, the provider of a content services platform, announces the availability of Nuxeo Platform 5.9.3, the latest Fast Track release featuring a new query engine based on the distributed search engine Elasticsearch, a new collections type that enables virtual folders, and Nuxeo Drive for iOS.
Fast Track versions of the Nuxeo Platform are released every 6 to 8 weeks, to provide innovations and enhancements early and often. The 5.9.3 version offers a major step forward in architectural flexibility, by decoupling the database and the query engine, as well as other valuable new user-friendly features.
“With Elasticsearch, we have separated the query engine from the database, which has major implications for architectural flexibility and performance,” said Eric Barroca, CEO at Nuxeo. “Because Elasticsearch scales horizontally, the Nuxeo Platform now has virtually infinite scalability.”
“Elasticsearch provides the scale, stability, and robust features to take the Nuxeo Platform to the next level in terms of scalability and performance,” Shay Banon, Elasticsearch creator, co-founder and CTO. “We are pleased that another innovative open source vendor chose Elasticsearch to provide fast, reliable search to its customers.”
Highlights of the Nuxeo Platform 5.9.3 Fast Track release include:
Elasticsearch-based Query Engine
Nuxeo Platform 5.9.3 features a new query engine based on the distributed search engine Elasticsearch.This enables horizontal scaling of query capacity, for exceptional performance and volume scalability.
Additional benefits of the Elasticsearch engine include:
- Faster full text search
- Extensive query and search capabilities, such as facets, location, “more results like this,” and many more
- Faster query response time
- Data aggregation and business reporting, with the Elasticsearch ability to compute statistics on repository content
- Horizontal scaling, by adding new Elasticsearch nodes
As with all Nuxeo Platform features, backwards compatibility is guaranteed. The Nuxeo Query Language, NXQL, works with Elasticsearch, so previously constructed queries are fully functional in the new version. It is also possible to use Elasticsearch directly for queries.
Collections are virtual folders, also referred to as a lightbox for digital asset management users. They provide a way for users to group arbitrary content items into a single collection, which is shareable. Bulk operations, such as validation, publishing, download and export, can be applied to a collection with a single click. With the REST API, it is possible to plug any operation into a collection.
Nuxeo Drive for iOS
A new iOS app allows users to have remote access to Nuxeo Platform content from an iPad. Users can browse and search the repository while connected, and select content for offline sync.
Additional features in the Fast Track release include a new calendar view, user creation by invitation, and various developer tools.
Nuxeo Platform 5.9.3 is available for immediate download.
