One of the most significant features introduced in Talend 6.x is availability of Spark and Spark streaming components (over 100 of them). This introduces paradigm shift for building big data jobs, expanding the possibilities way beyond batch jobs using Map Reduce and Tez. With Spark and Spark streaming, Talend Big Data is now real time, to the extent that micro-batching approximates to real time.
Other new facts about Talend 6 include
Comes with a new, modernized look-and-feel to the Studio user interface and features upgrades to the core platform as well (Eclipse 4-based).
Delivers an end-to-end Internet of Things integration platform combining IoT connectivity (MQTT, AMQP); high-speed, reliable messaging (Apache Kafka, Amazon Kinesis, Talend ESB); and high-speed big data integration (Spark).
