Continuent Expands Tungsten Replicator Certifications

Continuent, Inc., a provider of open source database clustering and replication solutions, announced that the latest release of Tungsten Replicator, version 3.0, has been certified by Cloudera. Tungsten Replicator 3.0 enables organizations to replicate transactions from operational database systems such as MySQL, MariaDB and Oracle to Cloudera Enterprise 5 in real-time.

Continuent says this latest certification on Cloudera Enterprise 5 assures customers that moving the data into Cloudera does not affect the operational capability or stability of operational database systems or Cloudera environments, which it says is critical for customers to be able to trust the quality of the data and the replication process itself.

"From our existing customer deployments, we know that their biggest challenge is getting information into Hadoop as quickly and timely as possible from multiple different hosts simultaneously,” said Robert Hodges, CEO, Continuent.  “With the Cloudera certification and our 24/7 support, our mutual clients can effectively process and add transactional data stores to Hadoop in order to concentrate and analyze information without implying additional load, application changes, or repetitive dump processes.  Tungsten Replicator also works across all CDH 5 releases.”

By providing data integrity with low overhead, Tungsten Replicator reads and writes information without having an impact on either the source database or the Hadoop cluster.  The Cloudera certification confirms that the data replicated by Tungsten Replicator matches the source and target to ensure data quality, and does not stress either side of the replication stream in the process.
