Every ETL process is ultimately I/O bound, especially at the end points of a job: extracting the data from the source and loading it into the target. Unlike any other ETL tool, DMX incorporates Smart I/O capabilities for many file systems and storage systems (e.g. storage array networks). Smart I/O bypasses the operating system buffer cache enabling a more efficient transfer of larger blocks of data. The results are faster data transfers with less CPU utilization.
DMX provides high-performance connectivity to virtually any source and target, including all major RDBMS systems, MPP appliances, flat files, XML files, HDFS, mainframe sources, and more.
