Hello, all --

Virtuoso is a common discussion topic here, so it seemed worth
sharing the announcement of the new release.

This is for the closed source edition, encompassing all the
features of the open source edition, with the addition of
geo-spatial indices and SPARQL-GEO, virtual database (VDBMS)
functionality, and clustering support.

Be seeing you,


///////// announcement follows

OpenLink Software would like to bring to your attention the
immediate availability, and limited-time special pricing, of
OpenLink Virtuoso v6.1.

What Is Virtuoso?

Virtuoso is our secure, high-performance, and scalable, multi-model
data management, access, and integration middleware platform. Its
development continues our 16+ year commitment to the vital issue of
platform-independent open data access and integration.

Why Is It Important?

As a database engine and integration middleware hybrid, Virtuoso
delivers a powerful solution to the problems associated with the
ever increasing data silos across internal enterprise networks or
the World Wide Web.

How Do I Use It?

After installation, you will be able to perform the following:

1. Use desktop productivity tools and/or development environments
    to act on a federation of different database tables without
    compromising performance or security, by attaching Virtuoso to
    multiple external ODBC- or JDBC-accessible data sources, all of
    which will thenceforth be accessible via a single ODBC, JDBC,
    ADO.NET, or OLE DB connection to Virtuoso.

2. Construct virtual database layers that offer conceptual model
    (people, places, and other real world things) oriented views
    over records spread across Line-Of-Business applications (CRM,
    ERP, SCM, etc.), Web Services (SOA or REST), Content Management
    Systems (blogs, wikis, shared bookmarks, feeds, etc.), Social
    Networks, etc.

3. Choose the conceptual view technology that suits you, from the
    W3C's Resource Description Framework (RDF) model oriented Linked
    Data Objects, to Microsoft's ADO.NET based Entity Frameworks,
    and beyond.

4. Bring location-specificity into play with the new geo-spatial
    indexing and related SPARQL-GEO functionality, enabling new
    levels of localized serendipity ("where's the nearest sushi
    restaurant that's open now and serves uni?").

How Do I Get It?

1. Download for local installation from:

2. Start your own instance of the Virtuoso (Cloud Edition) AMI
    for Amazon EC2 by following the instructions at:
