Syncsort Works with Greenplum to Improve Big Data Time-to-Insight

Syncsort, a global leader in high-performance data integration solutions, has certified its DMExpress data integration software for high-performance loading of Greenplum Database. Syncsort has also joined the Greenplum Catalyst Developer Program.

“IT organizations of all sizes are struggling to keep pace with the spiraling infrastructure demands created by the sheer volume, variety and velocity of big data,” says Mitch Seigle, vice president, marketing and product management, Syncsort. “By collaborating to create best-in-class solutions for integrating, storing and analyzing big data, Syncsort and Greenplum are helping customers overcome these challenges and enable their businesses to more quickly and cost-effectively benefit from the insights gained.” 

Syncsort DMExpress software delivers extensive connectivity that makes it easy to extract and transform data from nearly any source, and rapidly load it into the massively parallel processing (MPP) Greenplum Database without the need for manual tuning or custom coding, resulting in  cleaner, more relevant data being available sooner to drive big data analytics, reducing the time it takes to gain insight, and optimizing decision making.

According to the companies, Syncsort DMExpress software, operating in concert with the Greenplum Data Integration Accelerator (DIA) Module, can decrease the typical load times associated with big data, and, in recent benchmark testing, load throughput of more than 12 terabytes per hour was achieved using just four ETL servers.

As a Greenplum Catalyst Developer Program member, Syncsort will integrate DMExpress software with Greenplum Unified Analytics Platform (UAP). As part of this program, the companies will leverage the integration of DMExpress and Greenplum HD to simplify and accelerate the loading and extraction of data to and from the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and reduce the complexity and cost of developing and executing MapReduce tasks.
