Jessica Thornsby

Quest Software and Cloudera have announced a joint project to develop an Oracle connector for Apache Hadoop. The connector, codenamed ‘Orp-Oop’ will provide an interface that allows for bidirectional, scalable and functional data transfer between Oracle databases and Hadoop. Orp-Oop will support Oracle data types and table variants.

Quest Software already provide an open source SQL-to-Hadoop database import tool, ‘Sqoop’ which is included in Cloudera’s Hadoop distribution.
