BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, November 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability
software solutions, announced today the release of Attunity Managed File
Transfer (MFT) for Hadoop. The new generation enterprise data transfer
solution is designed to accelerate Big Data collection processes and integrate
them seamlessly into and out of Hadoop, the open-source programming framework
for large-scale data processing. Building on the proven and enterprise-scale
capabilities of Attunity MFT, the solution empowers organizations to collect
and transfer Big Data in both the cloud and enterprise data centers for
strategic initiatives including log and machine-data analytics, business
intelligence (BI), and data archiving.

As volumes of business data continue to increase, organizations are adopting
Hadoop to store, manage, and process Big Data. However, like other Big Data
projects, IT organizations are struggling to efficiently and effectively move
the data for BI and analytics. Similarly, organizations that are seeing Hadoop
as a lower cost alternative for archiving run into the same Big Data movement

Attunity MFT for Hadoop is designed to overcome the Big Data bottleneck by
providing an enterprise-scale gateway to the Hadoop Distributed File System
(HDFS), a distributed file system that enables scalable storage and processing
of "internet-scale" Big Data. The Attunity solution facilitates the process of
transferring data to HDFS by providing robust capabilities including
automation, scheduling, security, and auditing. Seamlessly integrated with
HDFS, Attunity MFT for Hadoop enables moving data into and out of Hadoop in
either batch or real time.

Attunity MFT for Hadoop features:

  oEnterprise-scale automation and scheduling for IT processes that collect
    and transfer data into HDFS, with advanced dashboards and notifications to
    monitor and control data transfer
  oSupport for many sources of data including enterprise as well as cloud
    files systems, web protocols like HTTP/S and S/FTP, email, and desktop
  oSupport for any Hadoop distribution based on standard HDFS 1.0 or higher,
    such as those by Apache, HortonWorks and Cloudera
  oWeb Services API for seamless integration with enterprise business
    platforms (ie. ERP, BPM, & CRM)
  oMulti-stage processing of the data being transferred with extensive
    security configuration options to meet the needs of highly regulated

"Hadoop has quickly become the platform of choice for storing, managing and
analyzing big data. We are pleased with the Attunity MFT solution that
addresses the challenges that enterprises face with large volumes of data and
a variety of sources and formats," said Mitch Ferguson, vice president of
business development at Hortonworks, a leading commercial vendor of Apache
Hadoop. "Our goal is to make Apache Hadoop become the next generation data
platform. Our partnership with Attunity helps bring an enterprise solution to
market that facilitates the adoption of Hadoop."

"Enterprises that leverage Big Data gain greater insight into their customers,
operations, and business environments," explained Matt Benati, VP Global
Marketing at Attunity. "Attunity MFT for Hadoop, the first of several Hadoop
solutions that Attunity will unveil, is designed to deliver on the great
promise of Hadoop by helping organizations achieve faster time-to-value for
Big Data analytics projects. With the release of Attunity MFT for Hadoop,
Attunity is able to increase its addressable market, provide broader options
for customers, and help companies harness the power of Big Data to drive new
insights and deliver competitive advantage."
