Latest Version of Enterprise Integration Platform Fully Embraces
Hadoop as a Computing Platform YARN as the Engine: Apache Hadoop has introduced some major
innovations, including YARN (also known as MapReduce 2.0). With
version 5.4, Talend enables the native use of YARN as the data
integration engine, allowing customers to immediately benefit from the
superior resource management that YARN offers. Unlike 3rd party
engines that sit on top of Hadoop, Talend v5.4 users directly benefit
from the massive scalability and elasticity built into the Hadoop
platform with zero overhead in scheduling, job management or platform
deployment and maintenance.
Visual Optimization of MapReduce Jobs: With version 5.4, Talend
is the only vendor that enables developers to determine the most
optimal way to design a MapReduce job before they run it in
production. Statistics and indicators are directly available in the
design environment to guide developers through the optimization
process that is performed against a sample of the actual data set.
Hadoop for Data Cleansing: Building on its commitment to data
quality as being critical to data integration, Talend v5.4 supports
big data quality generated as MapReduce jobs, making it possible for
computationally intensive data quality tasks to be performed at an
infinite scale. In addition to the already supported profiling sources
which included Hadoop, Hadoop Hive and all major relational databases,
Talend v5.4 adds profiling for HP Vertica and exposes the profiling
connection information so that additional connections can be built by
Support for Hadoop Security with Kerberos: Organizations
seeking to adopt big data are facing new challenges of management,
government and security. To address this, Talend v5.4 adds support for
Kerberos, the number one security framework for Hadoop, making Hadoop
distributions more secure.
NEW YORK, NY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
(Strata & Hadoop World Conference)-Talend,
a global open source software leader, today announced the availability
of version 5.4 of its next-generation integration platform, natively
optimized to run inside Hadoop by leveraging MapReduce 2.0, also known
as YARN. Setting itself apart as the only integration solution running
inside Hadoop, version 5.4 of Talend for Big Data enables data-driven
organizations to capitalize on all data assets in ways never thought
possible, thanks to the power of open source-driven innovation.
“At the forefront of a big data paradigm shift, Talend invests heavily
in building the integration platform of tomorrow, leveraging the
benefits of open source for enterprise clients,” said Fabrice Bonan, CTO
and co-founder of Talend. “With the advent of YARN, Hadoop is truly
becoming a computing platform that goes well beyond its early use cases.
With Talend v5.4, we are providing customers with the tools they need to
unleash the power of Hadoop to fully leverage their total data and use
it as a strategic asset, for any type of value-added project or
"VHA is using Talend's platform to aggregate, reconcile, cleanse and
deliver large and complex data sets from extremely diverse sources,"
said Lloyd Mangnall, vice president, architecture and quality at VHA.
"Talend's ability to take full advantage of modern data architectures to
master and transform data 'in place' is truly ground-breaking. We are
looking forward to using the new data quality features running natively
inside our Hadoop and NoSQL clusters, fully leveraging big data systems
to support master data management."
With version 5.4, Talend continues to break ground by providing unique
and unmatched capabilities to accelerate and increase value of big data
