TimeXtender’s Discovery Hub Now Available in the Cloud

Automation technology deploys data to a chosen destination with a single user command and automatically rebuilds data warehouse for those selecting cloud deployment.

TimeXtender, a software leader dedicated to democratizing access to corporate data, announced that customers now have the flexibility to deploy Discovery Hub in three models: in the cloud, on premises, or in a hybrid model.

With TimeXtender’s model, companies can select which data they want to deploy on premises or in the cloud to address their specific operational requirements, while laying the foundation to gradually evolve to a full cloud deployment over time if desired.

New Release Offers Increased Flexibility

It’s long been possible to install TimeXtender’s TX DWA on a virtual machine in the cloud. However, companies can now use Microsoft Azure SQL database as the foundation for their Discovery Hub in the cloud instead of maintaining their own on-premises Microsoft SQL Server. This has many benefits, with accessibility, scalability, and maintainability topping the list. With this new option, companies can choose to have the cloud provider take care of not only the hardware and initial installation of the software but also the ongoing maintenance of their SQL Server.

Additionally, TimeXtender is developing data lake management for TX DWA, enabling data teams to integrate data lake capabilities from Microsoft Azure into their data management infrastructure.

New User Interface Reinforces TimeXtender DNA and Culture

In addition, this release has a new look and feel that reinforces the TimeXtender brand.

Discovery Hub can be themed in the classic TimeXtender orange and features a toolbar that makes it easy to access the most commonly used commands. There is an hourglass, a lotus flower, and a series of reminders that encourage users to make the most of their time during deployment and execution.
