Sqoop is done for that kind of tasks.
======= Sqoop is an open-source tool that allows users to extract data from a
relational database into Hadoop for further processing.
This processing can be done with MapReduce programs or other
higher-level tools such as Hive. When the final results of an analytic
pipeline are available, Sqoop can export
these results back to the database for consumption by other clients.
