Attunity Offers New Hadoop Solution to Improve Analytics and Business Insights

Attunity Ltd., a provider of information availability software solutions, has released Attunity Managed File Transfer (MFT) for Hadoop. The new enterprise data transfer solution is designed to accelerate big data collection processes and integrate them seamlessly into and out of Hadoop. MFT enables  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, and data archiving.

“Enterprises that leverage big data gain greater insight into their customers, operations, and business environments,” explains 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.”

According to Attunity, as volumes of business data continue to increase, organizations are adopting Hadoop to store, manage, and process big data, but they are struggling to efficiently and effectively 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.

Addressing this challenge, 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. The Attunity solution facilitates the process of transferring data to HDFS by providing automation, scheduling, security, and auditing. Seamlessly integrated with HDFS, Attunity MFT for Hadoop enables moving data into and out of Hadoop in either batch or real time.

The solution features automation and scheduling for IT processes that collect and transfer data into HDFS, with advanced dashboards and notifications to monitor and control data transfer, and 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. Attunity MFT for Hadoopsupports anyHadoop distribution based on standard HDFS 1.0 or higher, including those by Apache, HortonWorks and Cloudera.
