Leading Data Integration Vendor to Deliver Enterprise Connectivity to Amazon

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Informatica
Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world's number one independent provider of data
integration software, today announced the Informatica Cloud Connector for
Amazon Redshift, a cloud data integration solution for direct connectivity to
the Amazon Web Service (AWS) cloud-based data warehouse service. The new
Informatica offering is aimed at changing the economics of data warehousing by
making cloud-based analytics a viable and affordable option for small and
large organizations.

Amazon Redshift is a fast and powerful, fully managed, petabyte-scale data
warehouse service in the cloud that delivers scalability and performance at
dramatically lower costs. Amazon Redshift costs under $1,000 per terabyte a

Informatica Cloud Connector for Amazon Redshift enables organizations to
quickly and reliably move data into Amazon Redshift, both from on-premise
enterprise systems and from other cloud applications. The new Informatica
offering will be provided on a subscription basis.

"Amazon Redshift allows companies to quickly analyze vast amounts of data at
less than a tenth of the cost of traditional data warehousing solutions," said
Terry Wise, head of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services.
"Informatica's new cloud integration offering moves on-premise and cloud data
into Amazon Redshift in a highly efficient and economical fashion and we're
pleased to work with Informatica to provide customers this cost-effective data
warehousing solution."
