Organizations store a considerable amount of information in file systems such as the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) or in content management environments.
Because this data is often shared in an ad-hoc basis through ftp, sftp or hdfs scripts, organizations end up with multiple copies of the same information, making it difficult to determine what data to use to make decisions.
Organizations have addressed this challenge for relational databases by consolidating systems or replicating data in real-time. But for file systems, this issue remains largely unresolved. HVR offers a solution. HVR replicates and integrates between file systems and databases, allowing you to make file system sources or targets an integral part of your replication implementation.
