BURLINGTON, Massachusetts, January 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability
software solutions, announced today that EMC Greenplum has officially
qualified Attunity RepliWeb for Enterprise File Replication (EFR) and Attunity
Managed File Transfer (MFT) with EMC Greenplum Hadoop (HD). Attunity RepliWeb
for EFR and Attunity MFT were designed as high-performance, easy-to-use
solutions for automating, managing and accelerating the process of making data
available for Big Data Analytics with Hadoop. The Attunity products, launched
earlier this year, are the first and only solutions currently qualified by EMC
for Greenplum HD.

Hadoop, the open-source programming framework for large-scale data processing,
has rapidly emerged as one of the leading solutions for Big Data analytics
across unstructured data. However, the efficient and timely movement of Big
Data into Hadoop continues to be a major challenge due to the exploding
amounts of unstructured and machine-generated data that companies generate
daily from various, disparate sources. The Attunity EFR and MFT solutions help
enterprises that want to capitalize on Big Data analytics to better support
decision-making and thereby improve their competitive position.

"According to results from Unisphere Research's new 2012 study, 'Big Data, Big
Challenges, Big Opportunities', only 19% of organizations are completely
confident that their current IT and data infrastructure will be up to the task
of handling the data management requirements of Big Data in the coming years,"
said Thomas J. Wilson, President of Unisphere Research, the market research
unit of DBTA. "Now is the time for forward-looking organizations to re-examine
their data management processes and evaluate new technologies, including
solutions supporting Hadoop and cloud adoption."

"Attunity is very pleased with the qualification of Attunity RepliWeb for EFR
and Attunity MFT for Greenplum HD and we look forward to continuing our
partnership with EMC Greenplum to ensure that the critical market challenge of
the Big Data bottleneck is solved," said Itamar Ankorion, Vice President
Business Development and Corporate Strategy at Attunity. "Attunity now offers
a complete set of EMC Greenplum-qualified solutions for loading data to both
the Greenplum Database and Greenplum HD, facilitating different types of
analytic processing to enable customers to capitalize on the value of Big Data
Analytics."
