WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. – September 19, 2012

Syncsort, a global leader in high-performance data integration solutions, today announced that its DMExpress® data integration software is now a Cloudera Certified Technology, certified for CDH4 (Cloudera’s Distribution Including Apache Hadoop, version 4). The company also announced that it has officially joined the Cloudera Connect Partner Program.

Recently announced, CDH4 is a 100-percent open source solution that combines Apache Hadoop with other Big Data technologies within the Hadoop stack to deliver advanced, enterprise-grade features to customers. CDH4 and Cloudera Enterprise 4.0, the company’s flagship Apache Hadoop data management platform, provide an end-to-end solution that enables enterprises to combine Hadoop with existing enterprise data management systems.

The certification of Syncsort® DMExpress with CDH4 gives customers the ability to use the high-performance, scalable data integration software with Cloudera’s widely deployed Big Data platform. DMExpress greatly simplifies and speeds the integration and movement of Big Data between the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and enterprise systems. Together, CDH4 and DMExpress simplify Hadoop for the enterprise and accelerate Big Data time-to-insight.

“Cloudera is focused on providing enterprises with the solutions and support they need to maximize the value of Big Data with confidence and ease,” said Tim Stevens, vice president of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera. “An important part of the value we bring is in uniting, educating and supporting a rich ecosystem of leading Big Data technology vendors, and we are excited to welcome Syncsort to the Cloudera Connect Partner Program. The efficiency and simplicity with which DMExpress can move data in and out of Apache Hadoop is complementary to CDH4, making it easier for enterprises to realize the full potential of Hadoop. We’re committed to helping enterprises achieve the most from their Big Data initiatives, and we’re pleased that Syncsort has completed certification of DMExpress on CDH4.”

“Syncsort and Cloudera share a commitment in finding valuable ways to contribute to the Hadoop community and help make Hadoop a stronger, more viable Big Data solution for leading enterprises,” said Mitch Seigle, vice president, Marketing and Product Management, Syncsort. “The certification of Syncsort DMExpress with CDH4 provides customers with an enterprise-ready solution for cost effectively moving data in and out of Hadoop, and addressing their Big Data integration challenges.”
