Officials with Attunity said the new generation enterprise data transfer solution is designed to accelerate big data collection processes and integrate them seamlessly into and out of Hadoop, the open-source programming framework for large-scale data processing.
Company officials said the solution, building on the proven and enterprise-scale capabilities of Attunity MFT, empowers organizations to collect and transfer big data in both the cloud and enterprise data centers for strategic initiatives including log and machine-data analytics, business intelligence (BI) and data archiving.
According to company officials, Attunity MFT for Hadoop is designed to overcome the big data bottleneck by providing an enterprise-scale gateway to the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), a distributed file system that enables scalable storage and processing of “Internet-scale” big data.
“Enterprises that leverage big data gain greater insight into their customers, operations and business environments,” said Matt Benati, VP global marketing at Attunity, in a statement.
Benati said Attunity MFT for Hadoop, the first of several Hadoop solutions that Attunity will unveil, is designed to deliver on the great promise of Hadoop by helping organizations achieve faster time-to-value for big data analytics projects.
With the release of Attunity MFT for Hadoop, Attunity is able to increase its addressable market, provide broader options for customers and help companies harness the power of big data to drive new insights and deliver competitive advantage.
“Hadoop has quickly become the platform of choice for storing, managing and analyzing big data. We are pleased with the Attunity MFT solution that addresses the challenges that enterprises face with large volumes of data and a variety of sources and formats,” said Mitch Ferguson, vice president of business development at Hortonworks, a commercial vendor of Apache Hadoop.“Our goal is to make Apache Hadoop become the next generation data platform. Our partnership with Attunity helps bring an enterprise solution to market that facilitates the adoption of Hadoop,” said Ferguson.
