Apache Sqoop is a tool designed for efficiently transferring bulk data 
between Apache Hadoop and structured datastores such as relational databases. 
It can be used to import data from external structured datastores into Hadoop 
Distributed File System or related systems like Hive and HBase. Conversely, 
Sqoop can be used to extract data from Hadoop and export it to external 
structured datastores such as relational databases and enterprise data
