Attunity Replicate for Apache Kafka Introduced
March 29 — Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ CM: ATTU), a leading provider of Big Data management software solutions, introduced today the availability of Attunity Replicate for Apache Kafka, designed to provide real-time Big Data streaming to Kafka across large-scale enterprise deployments. The latest version of Attunity’s high-performance data replication and loading software accelerates data ingest for Big Data analytics while reducing the time and effort required to manage and monitor up to thousands of feeds to a variety of existing and new target systems. The Attunity solution will be unveiled and demonstrated live this week at Strata + Hadoop World, Booth 1517, from March 29-31 in San Jose, CA.
Attunity Replicate’s direct integration into Kakfa, an open source, real-time scalable data streaming platform, eliminates the need for manual configuration and scripting when replicating a large number of application and data feeds from heterogeneous source systems. By leveraging this highly flexible interface, Attunity Replicate can now pipe data from thousands of applications to both existing platforms as well as rapidly growing NoSQL options such as HBASE and Cassandra. With this capability, enterprises can make all their data available to the entire global organization in a timely manner for enhanced analytics.
“Successful information integration requires combining mature technologies such as data integration with emerging niche technologies such as data ingestion service (aka data ingestion pipeline) and stream processing platforms,” according to Eric Thoo and Lakshmi Randall, Research Directors at Gartner. “The result is a streamlined solution that effectively serves reliable data to downstream consumers such as data warehouse, data lakes, and business intelligence and analytical applications.”
“The global rate of Kafka adoption is skyrocketing as enterprises embrace stream processing for big data,” said Jabari Norton, VP Business Development at Confluent, the company founded by the creators of Apache Kafka. “Attunity is an important partner for both Confluent and the broader Kafka community. Their technology simplifies integration with Kafka, enabling customers to more quickly derive greater business value from their data with less effort.”
Using Attunity Replicate for Kafka, organizations can:
- Easily stream high volume, low latency source data and real-time changes into Kafka
- Eliminate the need for manually configuring and scripting data feeds
from heterogeneous systems
- Feed multiple traditional as well as emerging targets
- Leverage Replicate’s Web-based dashboard to monitor data movement performance metrics
- Enjoy broad support for all the leading databases and data warehouses in the market
“We are excited about the opportunity that Attunity Replicate for Kafka poses for enterprises looking to scale their Big Data architectures,” said Lawrence Schwartz, Chief Marketing Officer at Attunity. “Our customers asked us to add Kafka support so they could both scale their systems and support new platforms. This enhanced platform helps our customers take their Big Data analytics to the next level.”
