The Connector for Tanzu Greenplum and Tanzu GemFire facilitates the mirroring of the entries of an entire VMware Tanzu GemFire region into a VMware Tanzu Greenplum table. The connector also facilitates the mirroring of the entries of an entire Greenplum Database table into a GemFire region.
All transfers are initiated from and specified within GemFire. Data copied from GemFire to Greenplum Database makes use of the GemFire export functionality. Data copied from Greenplum to GemFire makes use of the GemFire import functionality. The specification of mappings of tables within Greenplum Database to regions in GemFire may be set up with
gfsh commands or specified within a GemFire
cache.xml file. Further mappings identify which GemFire fields are to be imported from or exported to Greenplum Database table columns. A subset of the fields and columns may be specified, and then only that subset are imported or exported.
