Postgres database company EnterpriseDB has confirmed that its mission-critical special edition release of EDB Postgres Advanced Server (an enhanced version of PostgreSQL) has been certified for the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP).

Simplifies integration of traditional enterprise systems with Hadoop clusters to support a seamless data center fabric for analytics

The play here is as follows: combining EDB Postgres with HDP provides capabilities to integrate existing data management systems with data in Hadoop clusters.

Why bother? For data analytics, obviously… this why we do these things.

EDB’s Hadoop Data Adapter for EDB Postgres Advanced Server brings the ability to combine data in traditional corporate systems with big data from multiple data sources stored in Hadoop installations.

What is driving Hadoop’s multiple data sources?

  • Customer sentiment data from social media,
  • Clickstream data from online properties,
  • Machine and sensor data,
  • Global logistics data commonly stored in Hadoop clusters.

These sources generate huge volumes for traditional, relational systems and the data is collected in an unstructured fashion because analysis tends to follow collection and storage.

“Providing a certified integration with Hortonworks Data Platform removes complexity and risk from the task of integrating the strengths of Hadoop for analysis of Big Data with the system of record in EDB Postgres Advanced Server,” said Lenley Hensarling, senior VP for strategy and product management, EDB.

Combining this data with corporate transactional information for analysis, using EDB Postgres Data Adapter (based on Postgres Foreign Data Wrapper technology) is an opportunity for finding new efficiencies in operations or customer-driven revenue programs.
