Posted by decipherinfosys on April 5, 2012
Sqoop – the Big Data Tool has moved out of the Apache Incubator to a Top Level Project (TLP). In case you are not aware of Sqoop, it is the key data tool to transfer volumes of data between Hadoop and structured data stores like RDBMS (Relational Database Management Systems). This project provides connectors for many popular RDBMS – Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, DB2 and PostgreSQL. This is a significant step towards the adoption of Hadoop in the enterprise solutions.
