Darryl Taft of eWeek reports, "Attunity, a provider of information availability software solutions, has announced the release of a new version of its big data replication solution for Apache Hadoop, the Attunity RepliWeb for Enterprise File Replication (EFR). The latest version of the Attunity solution is designed to enable organizations to quickly and easily replicate data files to, from and between Apache Hadoop, the large volume storage platform that enables big data analytics. Attunity RepliWeb for EFR enables mission-critical initiatives including business intelligence (BI) and big data analytics that inform strategic decisions and drive competitive advantage, Attunity said."
Mitch Ferguson, vice president of business development at Hortonworks commented, "Increasingly, organizations are using Apache Hadoop because of its ability to store and process hundreds of terabytes to petabytes of data across thousands of servers, while providing a means to run jobs across those machines efficiently… Hadoop is unique because of its ability to process massive amounts of data. Hortonworks shares Attunity’s vision to help organizations bridge the gap between Hadoop and big data sources more quickly, easily and affordably. We look forward to continuing to work with Attunity in this regard to ensure that enterprises can continue to benefit from big data analytics worldwide."
