Sqoop is a Big Data tool, which has the capability to extract data from the non-Hadoop data stores and then it transforms the data into a form that is usable by Hadoop. This data is later loaded into HDFS. This process is known as ETL, where E stands for Extract, T stands for Transform, and L stands Load. Sqoop also has the ability to get data out of Hadoop and into an external data source for use in other kinds of application.
We all know that it is sometimes necessary to move the data in real time, but most of the times necessary to load or unload data in bulk. Sqoop can also be looked upon as a command-line interpreter. Sqoop is an efficient Big Data tool, which is so easy that even amateur programmers can handle it. It also has a high degree of dependence on technologies like HDFS and MapReduce.
