Cloud Computing Hadoop
Making Cloud Computing Hadoop Output Accessible Across the Enterprise
Hadoop, the Apache open source implementation of the MapReduce framework for massively parallel data processing, has emerged as the de facto platform for big data analytics. Cloud computing Hadoop services have gained momentum as a way for businesses to tap into Hadoop’s vast processing power without incurring the costs and complexities of operating an on-site Hadoop cluster. Amazon, IBM, and Microsoft offer cloud computing Hadoop services, as do some small, pure-play cloud Hadoop providers.
For an enterprise engaging or about to engage cloud computing Hadoop services, it’s important to consider how Hadoop computing will fit into broader data flows and use cases. In particular, how will you integrate Hadoop output with your current systems so that the data is usable and valuable?
From Cloud Computing Hadoop to Any Database, Anywhere
Standards-based database drivers from Progress DataDirect, the leading provider of next-generation cloud connectivity solutions, help make cloud computing Hadoop output more broadly accessible and usable across the enterprise. The integration process is simple: use the JDBC driver that’s bundled with Hadoop (specifically, with the Hadoop Hive application) to pull Hadoop data from its source location, and then use a DataDirect Connect JDBC driver to bulk load the data into the relational database of your choice. Utilizing open standard Java JDBC in this way, Hadoop cloud data can be easily integrated into use cases like data warehousing and data replication.
Why Use DataDirect for Cloud Computing Hadoop Connectivity?
For moving data from cloud computing Hadoop environments into target data storage systems, DataDirect’s market-leading drivers provide a better solution than competing drivers – including drivers that database makers sometimes bundle with their RDBMS packages. DataDirect drivers are unequalled when it comes to:
- Performance. As specialists in data connectivity, DataDirect makes drivers that consistently outperform competitors in benchmarking tests for throughput, latency, and resource utilization efficiency. DataDirect JDBC drivers are the SPECjAppServer/ECPerf performance and scalability leader, and feature built-in bulk load functionality ideal for migrating very large datasets.
- Reliability. Designed and built by data connectivity specialists and tested more thoroughly than any other drivers on the market, DataDirect drivers are the trusted choice for thousands of businesses and public organizations worldwide.
- Comprehensive coverage. DataDirect drivers provide reliable, high-performance ADO.NET, ODBC, or JDBC connectivity to any major type of database, on-site or in the cloud. We provide solutions for a wide range of modern data connectivity scenarios, ranging from cloud Oracle access to connectivity for the CRM cloud Salesforce. Our new Connect XE drivers make enterprise data associated with Salesforce cloud services more broadly usable across the organization.
