  • Hadoop partitioning — Enhances analytic-processing performance with custom and range partitioning for your specific Hadoop environment.
  • Oracle data replication to Hadoop — Replicates multiple copies of data to Hadoop Hive, HDFS, and HBase environments locally, remotely, or in-the-cloud for better business intelligence, predictive analytics, data warehousing, data staging, and archiving.
  • Near real-time replication to Hadoop HDFS — Writes data to HDFS files in text, sequence or Avro format. Rebuilds tables periodically by merging all the changes captured in a batch mode, avoiding time-consuming manual refreshes.
  • Real-time replication to Hadoop HBase — Allows changes to be posted immediately with all the columns on the source table replicated to a single column family for fast data analytics.
  • Hive support — Enables data to be queried by Hive or Hive-enabled products like Toad™ for Cloud Databases, Kitenga™ Analytics Suite, and Toad™ Data Point.
  • Comprehensive toolset — Includes all the necessary tools for Oracle to Hadoop data integration.
