BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, October 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ CM: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability software solutions, introduced today the availability of Attunity Replicate 4.0, designed to accelerate the adoption of Hadoop by reducing the complexity of moving Big Data to and from the technology platform. The latest version of Attunity's high-performance data replication solution, which reduces time, labor and ultimately the cost of implementing and using Hadoop, will be unveiled for the first time this week at the Strata Conference + Hadoop World, Booth 361, from October 15-17 at the Javitz Convention Center in New York.
According to estimates from analyst firm IDC, the Big Data market is predicted to be valued at $100bn by 2020, and half of this will be driven by Hadoop. According to the report, over the next few years, the size of Hadoop installations are expected to grow significantly as companies incorporate new data sources and business applications.
Yet, when using Hadoop for BI, analytics, and decision-making, implementation challenges exist.
"While adoption of Hadoop has continued to grow steadily worldwide, the data integration process is often underestimated and cobbled together, taking significant IT time and resources," explained Lawrence Schwartz, VP Marketing at Attunity. "However, leading organizations realize Hadoop's strategic importance to the business and the value it can provide with Big Data analytics. Using the new Attunity Replicate 4.0, enterprises no longer need additional hires or to acquire new skills. Companies can set up and implement the Attunity solution quickly and move Big Data from many different sources into and out of Hadoop with remarkable ease."
Using Attunity Replicate for Hadoop, organizations can achieve faster time-to-value for Big Data projects and capitalize on larger amounts of data in a more economical way. Key features of Attunity Replicate 4.0 include:
- High-performance data loading and extraction for Hadoop with optimized process and APIs
- Drag & drop configuration for setting up data movement without any coding or scripting
- Robust and flexible options for moving data, including full loads, reloads, appends, and incremental loading with change data capture (CDC)
- Web-based dashboard for monitoring data movement performance metrics
- Comprehensive support for leading databases and data warehouses in the market
- Certification with the top Hadoop distributions including Hortonworks® and Cloudera
"We are pleased to welcome Attunity and their YARN Ready technology to the Apache Hadoop community and look forward to working with them to help strengthen Hadoop's role as the foundation of the next-generation data architecture," said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing at Hortonworks. "The relationship will help accelerate implementations of Attunity Replicate 4.0 and the Hortonworks Data Platform across the modern data architecture."
"Enterprise customers need good data integration tools and the most capable enterprise data hub environment to get the most out of their Big Data initiatives," said Tim Stevens, vice president, Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera. "The recent certification of Attunity Replicate 4.0 on Cloudera Enterprise enables Cloudera customers to achieve faster time-to-value for Big Data projects by providing an easy-to-use and robust graphical environment for data movement to and from Hadoop."
