In this partner guest blog, John Haddad, senior director of product marketing at Infomatica, explains and enumerates how Stinger.next’s key innovations in Enterprise SQL at Hadoop scale will augment Informatica’s Big Data Edition integration with Hortonworks’ Modern Data Architecture.
Informatica is excited about the new innovations Hortonworks is including in the Stinger.next project such as Hive transactions, Hive-Spark integration, and sub-second queries. The Informatica Big Data Edition helps our customers take advantage of these new innovations without having to rebuild their data pipelines for Big Data analytics. This is achieved through a visual development environment and metadata driven approach built on the Informatica Vibe virtual data machine that runs natively in Hadoop. For example:
These are just some key benefits as the Stinger project continues to evolve. Our joint customers expect that the corporate IT standards for governance, security, and reliability will extend throughout the Modern Data Architecture as they look to complement their existing information management infrastructure with Hadoop. Transaction-level support (i.e. ACID), sub-second queries, and continuous performance improvements are major milestones for applications running on Hadoop such as the Informatica Big Data Edition. Informatica running on Hortonworks ensures our customers can implement a Modern Data Architecture (see Figure 1) that supports the demands of enterprise-ready deployments with regards to performance, scalability, security, and governance.
