As of 7.2.0, HPCC Systems platform users have access to a new Web service called WsStore. The service is a general purpose key-value (KV) store. A key-value store is a type of non-relational database that uses a simple key-value pair mechanism to store data in which the key serves as a unique identifier to index associated value entries. Keys and values can be anything--ranging from simple literals to complex compound objects.

One new feature to look out for in HPCC Systems 7.0.0, is log visualization integration with ECL Watch using ELK (ElasticSearch, Logstash and Kibana). Log visualizations help identify, track and predict important events and trends on HPCC Systems clusters, by spotting interesting patterns and giving you visual clues which are easier to interpret than reading through the log file itself.

Tableau Desktop users can now access local copies of HPCC Systems data* from Tableau Desktop via the newly released HPCC-Tableau WebData Connector.

The Tableau Web DataConnector framework creates a local data extract based on the targeted HPCC file(s), which can be used to analyze, visualize, or report as any other Tableau based dataset.
