VMware Greenplum is a massively parallel processing database server specially designed to manage large scale analytic data warehouses and business intelligence workloads. Apache NiFi is a framework that provides an interactive user interface through which you create and manage automated dataflows between systems. The VMware Greenplum Connector for Apache NiFi provides organizations a fast and simple way to build data ingestion pipelines for Greenplum Database, code-free.
You can use the web-based Apache NiFi user interface and built-in NiFi processors to set up a data pipeline that employs the Connector’s
PutGreenplumRecord processor to load record-oriented data into Greenplum Database for subsequent analytics.
The VMware Greenplum Connector for Apache NiFi uses the Greenplum Streaming Server to load data in parallel into Greenplum Database. This facilitates higher concurrency and throughput during data ingestion compared to a JDBC-based NiFi processor, with less load on the Greenplum Database master host.
