EnterpriseDB® (EDB™) has certified the EDB Postgres™Advanced Server database for the Hortonworks Data Platform. The certification ultimately will provide organizations with a powerful solution for combining data stored in Hadoop clusters with their transactional information. This seamless view of information will empower organizations to engage in a deeper analysis into corporate data for finding new efficiencies in operations or customer-driven revenue programs. (Read the press release here.)

EDB developed a Foreign Data Wrapper (FDW) for the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS_FDW) that helped achieve this certification for the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). FDWs are a Postgres feature for connecting external data stores to Postgres and enable applications to query this data with SQL as if it were native Postgres data. The HDFS_FDW is an EDB Postgres Data Adapter that uses the capabilities enabled by FDW technology to ease integration of EDB Postgres with other solutions deployed throughout the data center.

EDB has an aggressive development program for EDB Postgres Data Adapters for Postgres to enable organizations to create a seamless data center fabric and extract greater insight from their data by combining information from multiple sources. The ability to more easily combine data also eliminates complexity and risk and positions Postgres as a single, federated data management solution.
