Redwood City, California, UNITED STATES

Booth #2619, AWS re:Invent 2016, Las Vegas, NV, Dec. 1, 2016, Dec. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Informatica®, a leading provider of data management solutions, today announced it now provides a hybrid data management platform optimized for scale on Amazon Web Services (AWS), helping enterprises to quickly realize the full value of their AWS implementations.

The benefits of agility, elasticity and cloud economies delivered by AWS are well known. Enterprises embracing AWS are eagerly seeking ways to accelerate their realization of these benefits and gain faster time-to-business insights while ensuring their data remains connected and trusted. With the Informatica Data Management Platform, AWS customers can now benefit from:

  • Hybrid Data Management - Informatica delivers the pioneering Informatica Enterprise Information Catalog on AWS. This is a key factor in accelerating data migration with confidence to AWS. With the Informatica Information Catalog organizations can quickly and accurately identify on-premise data and the data lineage to easily migrate to AWS while leveraging their on-premise investment in Informatica PowerCenter® on AWS.
  • Industry-leading data integration – The industry’s leading enterprise data integration solution, Informatica PowerCenter, is available for single-click deployment on AWS Marketplace to support hybrid or cloud-only data warehouse implementations leveraging Amazon Redshift.
  • Scaling to unlock big data value – Encapsulating the only comprehensive data lake management solution for AWS, Informatica Big Data Management is available for single-click deployment on AWS Marketplace for streamlined implementation of easily managed, cloud-ready data lakes.

Leading Hybrid Data Management Platform is Optimized for AWS

Award-winning Informatica PowerCenter is available on AWS Marketplace for rapid and highly scalable deployment in AWS environments. Customers can easily stand up new PowerCenter deployments on AWS, or migrate all or part of an existing on-premise PowerCenter deployment to AWS by moving or extending select data integration workloads to AWS. Examples of such hybrid deployments include “bursting” integration workloads to AWS during peak periods, or using AWS to help provide disaster recovery for on-premise workloads – or vice versa.

Migrate Data with Confidence to AWS

The new Informatica Enterprise Information Catalog enables users to quickly discover and understand all enterprise data for migration, using intelligent self-service tools powered by machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Deployable with a single click from AWS Marketplace, Informatica Enterprise Information Catalog makes it easy to create a roadmap for AWS data migration with full confidence of success.

Additional Informatica data migration tools for AWS environments include a new high-performance Aurora connector that enables seamless migration of relational data from on-premise relational database systems, including Oracle Database and Microsoft SQL Server, to Amazon Aurora.

Jumpstart and Scale Amazon Redshift Data Warehouse

Informatica is making it easy for enterprises to get up and running with Amazon Redshift for cloud data warehousing and to scale existing Amazon Redshift deployments. To handle expanding workloads, Informatica’s support for Amazon Redshift now exhibits a 15x performance increase resulting from new partitioning and pushdown optimization support, better leveraging Amazon Redshift’s inherent processing power. Other enhanced Informatica capabilities help drive additional significant Amazon Redshift productivity improvements.

Additionally, the new Informatica connector for Amazon Quicksight, delivers connected, trusted data for analytics in Amazon Quicksight.

Unlock Big Data Insights with Data Lakes on AWS

Informatica’s comprehensive big data management solution is now available for the first time on AWS Marketplace for single-click rapid deployment helping organizations streamline delivery of data lakes on AWS, and leverage Amazon EMR, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). Smooth deployment is further facilitated by a comprehensive reference architecture guide available from Informatica for deploying data lakes on AWS.

Once the data lake is deployed, Informatica provides unique line-of-business self-service capabilities on AWS, via the Intelligent Data Lake, to empower analysts and data scientists to effectively discover and prepare big data sets in AWS data lakes.
