Attunity releases new Managed File Transfer for Hadoop
Nov 26, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Attunity Ltd., a provider of information availability software solutions, has released the Attunity Managed File Transfer, or MFT, for Hadoop. The new generation enterprise data transfer solution is designed to accelerate Big Data collection processes and integrate them into and out of Hadoop, the open-source programming framework for large-scale data processing.
Building on the capabilities of Attunity MFT, the solution 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.
As volumes of business data continue to increase, organizations are adopting Hadoop to store, manage, and process Big Data. However, like other Big Data projects, IT organizations are struggling to move the data for BI and analytics. Similarly, organizations that are seeing Hadoop as a lower cost alternative for archiving run into the same Big Data movement challenges.
Attunity MFT for Hadoop is designed to overcome the Big Data bottleneck by providing a gateway to the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), a distributed file system that enables scalable storage and processing of internet-scale Big Data. The Attunity solution facilitates the process of transferring data to HDFS by providing capabilities including automation, scheduling, security, and auditing. Integrated with HDFS, Attunity MFT for Hadoop enables moving data into and out of Hadoop in either batch or real time.
Attunity MFT for Hadoop features; enterprise-scale automation and scheduling for IT processes that collect and transfer data into HDFS, with advanced dashboards and notifications to monitor and control data transfer; support for many sources of data including enterprise as well as cloud files systems, web protocols like HTTP/S and S/FTP, email, and desktop; support for any Hadoop distribution based on standard HDFS 1.0 or higher, such as those by Apache, HortonWorks and Cloudera; web services API for integration with enterprise business platforms (ie. ERP, BPM, & CRM); and multi-stage processing of the data being transferred with extensive security configuration options to meet the needs of highly regulated industries.
"Enterprises that leverage Big Data gain greater insight into their customers, operations, and business environments," explained Matt Benati, VP global marketing at Attunity. "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."
