Recent Certification Enables Easy Data Replication from MySQL and Oracle



SAN JOSE, CA – May 6, 2014 – Continuent, Inc., a leading provider of open source database clustering and replication solutions, today announced that their recently announced Tungsten Replicator 3.0 solution has been certified by Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop. Continuent Tungsten Replicator 3.0 enables organizations to quickly and easily replicate transactions from operational database systems such as MySQL, MariaDB and Oracle® to Cloudera Enterprise 5 in continuous real-time.

As part of the Cloudera Connect program, Continuent's latest certification on Cloudera Enterprise 5 assures customers that moving the data into Cloudera does not affect the operational capability or stability of operational database systems or Cloudera environments. This is critical for customers to be able to trust the quality of the data and the replication process itself.

"Cloudera partners continue to provide true technology innovation to Cloudera Enterprise 5, and we are thrilled to have Continuent join our growing list of trusted vendors," said Tim Stevens, vice president of Business and Corporate development at Cloudera.

By providing trusted data integrity with very low overhead, Tungsten Replicator reads and writes information without having an impact on either the source database or the Hadoop cluster. The Cloudera certification confirms that the data replicated by Tungsten Replicator matches the source and target to ensure the utmost in data quality, and does not excessively stress either side of the replication stream in the process.

"From our existing customer deployments, we know that their biggest challenge is getting information into Hadoop as quickly and timely as possible from multiple different hosts simultaneously," said Robert Hodges, CEO, Continuent. "With the Cloudera certification and our 24/7 support, our mutual clients can effectively process and add transactional data stores to Hadoop in order to concentrate and analyze information without implying additional load, application changes, or repetitive dump processes. Tungsten Replicator also works across all CDH 5 releases."
