| May 29, 2024
WhereScape RED 10.0

We’re proud to announce the highly anticipated WhereScape RED 10.1 is now available, and it’s packed with exciting new features and enhancements designed to make your data warehousing experience more efficient and enjoyable. Let’s take a closer look at what’s new and improved!

Customizable Object Subtypes

One of the standout features in WhereScape RED 10.1 is the introduction of Customizable Object Subtypes. This feature allows you to configure object subtypes based on existing object types in RED with settings for:

  • Name
  • Icon to appear in object trees and documentation
  • Default Routine Templates for automated code generation
  • Appearance in object trees
Customizable Object Subtypes

This enhancement is particularly useful for users managing complex data structures like Data Vaults, enabling more precise differentiation and control over automation aspects. Plus, you can now assign specific icons to each subtype, boosting productivity and enhancing the visual appeal of your workspace.

Enhanced Scheduler Capabilities

Data Automation

This release brings significant improvements to the scheduler, especially in how it handles abnormal job runs:

  • Azkaban and RED 10: RED 10 benefits from the dynamic open-source Azkaban scheduler, powered by LinkedIn, offering improved productivity, scalability, and collaboration.
  • Improved Azkaban/RED Synchronization: When canceling jobs directly from Azkaban, the RED job metadata is updated automatically, eliminating the need for extra tasks to sync states.
  • Child Process Cleanup on Job Cancellations: Optional cleanup scripts are triggered automatically to kill lingering child processes, ensuring no unwanted transactions occur.
  • Improved Job Restart Workflow: Manually marking a failed task as ‘completed’ now allows for a smoother restart, marking the job as ‘Succeeded’ if no other tasks failed.

These updates ensure smoother, more efficient job management, minimizing disruptions and enhancing overall workflow stability.

Customer-Centric Improvements and Security Updates


WhereScape RED 10.1 also includes various customer-driven enhancements and critical support fixes. Additionally, we’ve updated third-party libraries, ensuring your data warehousing environment is secure and up-to-date.

Seamless Migration and Compatibility

We’ve streamlined the migration process from earlier versions of RED. While there’s no direct upgrade path due to new PostgreSQL metadata and Azkaban-based scheduler, migration tooling will soon be available. This release is also fully compatible with WhereScape 3D and later, ensuring seamless integration with your existing tools.
