Data Warehouse Solutions for Pivotal Greenplum

Attunity Replicate for Pivotal Greenplum enables operational data warehousing for Greenplum environments by providing high-performance, end-to-end data replication with quick time-to-value.

The solution empowers Pivotal customers to quickly load data from heterogeneous data sources including Oracle, SQL Server, and IBM DB2, and then maintain the changed data continuously and efficiently. Attunity Replicate effectively facilitates the latter function via change data capture (CDC)  technology, streaming changes captured from the source databases to Greenplum  with very low impact on the source. This complete solution enables initiatives including BI and analytics, operational reporting, data distribution and more.

Attunity Replicate for Greenplum supports:

  • High-performance loads and continuous data capture
  • Click-2-Replicate graphical user interface for designing and monitoring replication tasks
  • A wide range of data sources including mainstream relational databases and legacy systems
  • Automatic schema generation and implementation of metadata changes in Greenplum
  • Transparent data type transformations between  source and Greenplum




Attunity Replicate’s server architecture is tightly integrated with the Greenplum parallel file server (gpfdist) in order to leverage its Scatter/Gather Streaming technology for optimized fast, parallel data loading. This integrated approach ensures that all of the segments in the Greenplum Database system are fully utilized when loading data to provide optimal, streamlined performance.

Designed to meet reliability and high-performance requirements of the most mission-critical enterprises, Attunity Replicate Server can be configured directly on The Pivotal Greenplum Data Integration Accelerator (DIA). This architecture is specially built to facilitate fast data loading to the Pivotal Greenplum Data Computing Appliance (DCA), which benefits from being on DCA’s shared interconnect for high-speed data access.

  • Full Load:  With Attunity Replicate for Greenplum, Pivotal customers can quickly and efficiently load data from heterogeneous data sources and leverage full schema and DDL replication.
  • Incremental Load via Change Data Capture (CDC):  Attunity Replicate for Greenplum streams changes captured from the source databases to the data warehouse with minimal impact on source systems.
