The need to bridge data and information from various systems is greater than ever and SnapLogic (news, site) has introduced updates to its server, as well as a new control center to keep things humming along.

A Lotta Money Goes a Long Way

It's always nice to get to have some extra money in your back pocket. SnapLogic now has US $10 million. The Series B funding comes from Andreessen Horowitz and is a continuation of their investment in the enterprise integration company.

SnapLogic, who offers a solution that helps organizations integrate both on premise and "in the cloud" data, says it will use the additional funding for product development, marketing and sales development and expansion in to Europe.

But they weren't waiting on this funding to update their current solution offering.

SnapCenter Control Center

The newest solution to come from SnapLogic is the SnapCenter Control Center. The Control Center supports the complete creation and management of the SnapLogic environment, including all servers, data pipelines and connections between applications and data sources.

Drag and drop capabilities have been included to enable the quick creation of connections between data sources and applications. There are also visualization capabilities, so you can see the environment you are managing, including performance and utilization levels, allowing you to quickly find and resolve any issues that arise.
