Outsourcer 3.1 and New Name!

Outsourcer 3.1 is now available for download on the Installation page. Updated Documentation is also available on the Documentation page.

What’s new?
Oracle

  • FetchSize is now configurable. To minimize round trips to Oracle, make this setting rather large (greater than 10,000) which increases exporting speed but at the expense of needing more RAM. Adjust this setting up or down based on your environment. Default is 40,000.

SQL Server

  • Fix to better handle non-default schemas

DDL Refresh Type

  • Several customers have requested for Outsourcer to just create the tables in Greenplum based on the DDL in the source without loading the tables. This new Refresh Type does just that.

New Name: PivotalGuru.com

Greenplum is now part of Pivotal and to follow this name change, I now have the PivotalGuru.com site!

Pivotal is an exciting and rather large startup company with investments from EMC, VMWare, and GE. I am proud to be part of this new company and very excited about the new offerings in Big Data and Cloud Computing that Pivotal will bring to market.
