January 10, 2008 -- 1Spatial is pleased to announce the release of version 2.0 of their Radius Studio product.
Radius Studio is an enterprise data integration and quality assessment tool that makes comprehensive use of the Oracle technology stack. It provides a data certification platform that ensures the quality and consistency of spatial data located in either Oracle 9i / 10g Databases or in vector file formats accessed via Feature Data Objects (FDO). This solution is delivered in a J2EE architecture that offers web access through the Oracle 10g Application Server (or JBoss v4.0.4 GA) and makes effective use of Oracle MapViewer.
Version 2.0 of Radius Studio incorporates several additional features, including provision of the ability to spread data processing across multiple machines via distributing components, such as the Sun Grid Engine. This functionality is enabled via web services and allows large volumes of data to be validated against data quality and business rules in a timely and efficient manner, greatly reducing workflow run-times.
This version also introduces application server support for SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 in addition to the existing Microsoft Windows XP and 2003 Server support. Another important new feature is the ability to download and upload Radius Studio elements. This means that Radius Studio elements such as data stores, rules, actions and templates can be easily shared between development, test and production systems.
“This is a very important release for Radius Studio” said Graham Stickler, Product and Marketing Director of 1Spatial. “The architectural change to support grid computing and the additional functionality of version 2.0 fulfills the requirements of an increasingly demanding data quality market and allows further accessibility via the added platform support.”
