What Is Gluent
Whether you want to admit it or not, for years your data has been held captive inside of enterprise silos made up of transactional databases, enterprise data warehouses, and specialty data marts. Joining data from one Silo to another meant linking them via costly and often fragile ETL streams that had to run constantly and be rewritten every time there was a change to a source or destination repository.
At Gluent, we believe there is a better way.
With Gluent Data Platform, you can liberate your data from the confines of proprietary data silos. By offloading it to Hadoop, you gain access to all your data across the enterprise and the freedom to use it how ever and when ever you want. With Gluent Smart Connector, the databases of origin won’t even know the data is gone. Your existing applications run as they always have, without code changes. What’s more, with Gluent Present you can enrich data in existing databases with data that may exist only in Hadoop.

As a long-time RDBMS developer, the introduction of Big Data can be not only disruptive, but potentially frightening. You’ve spent years learning and perfecting your skills. And although we know RDBMS’s won’t be come obsolete, their place in the enterprise is definitely changing. Gluent can help you keep your hard-earned skills relevant in a hybrid world:
Database Administrators historically have not only been the data stewards, but have also been tasked with making sure the infrastructure performs adequately for the enterprise. As data volumes grow, traditional RDBMS systems have begun to falter under the strain. Gluent allows the savvy DBA to continue to leverage RDBMS systems for the transactional applications they were designed for, and push the heavy lifting of data analytics and data sharing down to Big Data platforms.
