EnterpriseDB Announces Postgres Plus Connector for Hadoop

EnterpriseDB,  a commercial software company supporting the PostgreSQL open source database, has announced the Postgres Plus Connector for Hadoop, which enables massive amounts of data from a Postgres Plus Advanced Server (PPAS) or PostgreSQL database to be accessed, processed and analyzed in a Hadoop cluster. The Postgres Plus Connector for Hadoop enables programmers to process large amounts of SQL-based data using their familiar MapReduce constructs. EnterpriseDB has opened a private Postgres Plus Connector for Hadoop beta program.

"With Postgres Plus Connector for Hadoop, Postgres Plus Advanced Server users can tap into the massive processing, storage, and analysis power of Hadoop," says Karen Tegan Padir, vice president of products and marketing at EnterpriseDB. "Our connector is ideal for companies committed to the business imperatives best served by their traditional SQL systems but who want to integrate the new capabilities and benefits offered by Hadoop."

Hadoop is an open source distributed processing framework that aids in big data processing for distributed text searching, web access log stats, machine learning, and statistical machine translation.
