Attunity to Offer Data Migration Solution for Amazon Redshift

By David Delony

Attunity, a provider of information availability services, has announced that it is releasing a solution to help businesses migrate their data to Amazon Redshift, the company’s new cloud-based data warehousing service.

"Attunity is thrilled with the launch of Amazon Redshift, which can provide enterprises with the opportunity to significantly reduce the costs of data warehousing and derive competitive advantage from Big Data analytics," said Itamar Ankorion, vice president of business development and corporate strategy at Attunity. "Attunity's solution is being uniquely architected for high-speed data loading from enterprise databases to Amazon Redshift, designed to alleviate the data transfer bottleneck, and accelerate time to value. We are focused on enabling customers to benefit from the economies of cloud computing."

“Technology partners play an important role in the Amazon Redshift ecosystem and Attunity's solution offers customers an efficient way to move their data into Amazon Redshift," said Terry Wise, head of worldwide partner ecosystem at Amazon Web Services. "The high performance and ease of use that Attunity's solution will provide will make it even easier for our customers to realize the business and cost-saving benefits of Amazon Redshift.

Amazon Redshift is intended to make data warehousing accessible to businesses that would find the costs of setting up the infrastructure to capture and analyze large amounts of data prohibitive.

Attunity will provide a way to allow users of existing on-premises databases to move their data quickly into a Redshift database. The tools are expected to be available in March. Customers will then have access to big data analytics for only a fraction of the cost of other systems.

“When we set out to build Amazon Redshift, we wanted to leverage the massive scale of AWS to deliver 10 times the performance at 1/10 the cost of on-premises data warehouses in use today,” Raju Gulabani, vice president of database services for Amazon Web Services, told the Herald Online at Redshift’s launch. “With order of magnitude improvements in price/performance, Amazon Redshift makes big data analytics accessible to more people, allowing large organizations to analyze more of their data and smaller ones to afford fast, scalable data warehousing technology.”
