Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today that EMC Greenplum has officially qualified Attunity RepliWeb for Enterprise File Replication (EFR) and Attunity Managed File Transfer (MFT) with EMC Greenplum Hadoop (HD). Attunity RepliWeb for EFR and Attunity MFT were designed as high-performance, easy-to-use solutions for automating, managing and accelerating the process of making data available for Big Data Analytics with Hadoop. The Attunity products, launched earlier this year, are the first and only solutions currently qualified by EMC for Greenplum HD.
Hadoop, the open-source programming framework for large-scale data processing, has rapidly emerged as one of the leading solutions for Big Data analytics across unstructured data. However, the efficient and timely movement of Big Data into Hadoop continues to be a major challenge due to the exploding amounts of unstructured and machine-generated data that companies generate daily from various, disparate sources. The Attunity EFR and MFT solutions help enterprises that want to capitalize on Big Data analytics to better support decision-making and thereby improve their competitive position.
"According to results from Unisphere Research's new 2012 study, '
Big Data, Big Challenges, Big Opportunities
', only 19% of organizations are completely confident that their current IT and data infrastructure will be up to the task of handling the data management requirements of Big Data in the coming years," said
Thomas J. Wilson, President of Unisphere Research, the market research unit of DBTA
. "Now is the time for forward-looking organizations to re-examine their data management processes and evaluate new technologies, including solutions supporting Hadoop and cloud adoption."
"Attunity is very pleased with the qualification of Attunity RepliWeb for EFR and Attunity MFT for Greenplum HD and we look forward to continuing our partnership with EMC Greenplum to ensure that the critical market challenge of the Big Data bottleneck is solved," said
Itamar Ankorion, Vice President Business Development and Corporate Strategy at Attunity
. "Attunity now offers a complete set of EMC Greenplum-qualified solutions for loading data to both the Greenplum Database and Greenplum HD, facilitating different types of analytic processing to enable customers to capitalize on the value of Big Data Analytics."
