We’ve decided to end the year with some platform upgrades for you. Just a few more tweaks to make Xplenty Hadoop-as-a-Service that much more functional.

  • Full support for datetime data type - auto-detection of datetime fields (in ISO format) in cloud storage source, related functions and seamless datetime integration with databases.

  • Sample component allows the user to select a percentage of random records that match the criteria defined by previous components in the dataflow.

  • Rank component lets the user sort by multiple fields and assign a rank to each record that reflects the sort order.

  • Now you can use the cloud storage destination component to store json data as well as flat files.

Thanks for your patronage and have a wonderful new year!
