Talend, a global open source software leader, today announced the addition of support for widely-used and deployed NoSQL databases in Talend’s big data integration solutions, Talend Open Studio for Big Data and Talend Platform for Big Data.
Talend already provides graphical components that enable easy configuration for leading big data technologies such as Apache Hadoop’s HDFS file system or Apache Hive to provide random, real-time read/write, column-oriented access to big data. With support for leading NoSQL technologies including Cassandra, HBase and MongoDB, Talend enables organizations to attain the highest levels of big data integration performance and inclusiveness. This support also extends the scope of Talend’s integration across the full spectrum of transactional, operational and analytic data sources found in enterprise big data environments. Talend’s enterprise integration platform enables the seamless flow of information between these diverse data sources.
“This integration emphasizes Talend’s commitment to NoSQL technologies, which are becoming increasingly critical in big data deployments,” said Fabrice Bonan, co-founder and chief technical officer, Talend. “NoSQL databases give organizations the advantages of scale and flexibility of data structures, and are a good option for managing large amounts of data where the relationship between the data elements is less important. As NoSQL has become the go-to technology for certain types of architecture, the integration of these platforms into Talend’s big data solution enables customers to use these new connectors to migrate and synchronize data between NoSQL databases and their more traditional data stores.”
The only data integration and data quality vendor to fully leverage the power of Hadoop and big data platforms, Talend offers the most agile solution for big data today. Built on Talend’s award-winning open source integration technology, Talend Open Studio for Big Data is a powerful and versatile open source solution for big data integration that natively supports Apache Hadoop, including connectors for Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), HCatalog, Hive, Oozie, Pig and Sqoop – in addition to the 450+ connectors included natively into the solution. Its unique code generation approach, optimized for these massively parallel environments, helps organizations of all sizes to reap the rewards of the vast amounts of data they have collected over time, at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.
Talend NoSQL connectors for Cassandra, HBase and MongoDB will be available in November 2012 as part of the release of Talend v5.2. Additional information and regular updates can be found by following Talend on Twitter at @Talend and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/talend.
