Continuent Releases Tungsten Replicator 3.O: Enables Real-Time Data Loading from MySQL, MariaDB and Oracle to Hadoop

Percona Live MySQL Conference 2014 Booth #300––Continuent, Inc., a leading provider of open source database clustering and replication solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Continuent Tungsten Replicator 3.0, a progressive, open source replication solution for Hadoop. Recognizing that fast decision-making depends on real-time data movement, Tungsten Replicator 3.0 replicates transactions from operational database systems such as MySQL, MariaDB and Oracle® to Hadoop in real-time. This produces carbon-copy tables and enables the execution of analytic views in Hadoop within multiple environments including Hive.

By automatically reading the DBMS and forwarding transactions as soon as they commit, Tungsten Replicator reduces the load on operational systems, minimizes the amount of data that needs to move between locations, and allows transactions to quickly enter the data warehouse. When used together with Apache Sqoop, businesses can provision information and then leverage Tungsten Replicator to replicate transactions incrementally in real-time. This provides continuous data loading so existing data and changes can easily be applied into Hadoop. To learn more, visit Continuent at the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo in booth #300 on April 1st, at the Collaborate14 in booth #1632 on April 7th or at the Red Hat Summit in booth # 917A on April 14th.

“Today, organizations are struggling to achieve real-time integration between MySQL/MariaDB and Hadoop and Oracle and Hadoop,” said Robert Hodges, CEO, Continuent. “Rapid loading of data into Hadoop enables effective analytics and is becoming increasingly crucial, as Hadoop itself raises the bar for real-time query through technology like the Cloudera-sponsored Impala project, Spark, and HBase. With a flexible topology, our low cost, open source based solution provides organizations with a high-performance, low-impact way to transfer data from multiple upstream systems into Hadoop and to handle billions of transactions daily in order to derive demonstrable business value.”

“Having tried traditional ETL tools and slow data-scraping techniques that put a heavy load on operational systems, we found that we were unable to meet demand,” said Chris Schneider, Database Architect at Groupon. “Hadoop has clearly changed the landscape of data management by providing a central data hub that receives data from across the business; however, there is now a wide range of services that need to move OLTP data efficiently into Hadoop. With Tungsten Replicator we can quickly and flexibly move data out of operational databases into Hadoop where we run analytics that answer important business questions on timelines matching the needs of our users.”

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again.

Labor market analytics firm Wanted Analytics recently assessed the market for technology professionals and found that demand for people with proficient levels of Hadoop expertise had skyrocketed by around 33% since last year – it is true, Hadoop is hard technology to master and the labor market is not exactly flooded with an over-abundance of skilled practitioners. Hadoop has been called a foundational technology, rather than ‘just’ a database by some commentators – this almost pushes it towards...
