Bangalore, India: Oracle has introduced its big data solutions platform to help customers tackle big data and make decisions faster. Oracle’s big data strategy is driven by its overall approach to data management with engineered systems in which hardware and software are engineered to work together for performance, reliability, and scalability.
Oracle’s big data platform includes Oracle Big Data Appliance, which in conjunction with Oracle Exadata, and Oracle Exalytics offers an integrated product portfolio to help customers acquire and organize diverse data types, and then analyze them alongside existing enterprise data to discover new insights and make the informed decisions.
Oracle Big Data Appliance is an engineered system built to gather, organize, and load unstructured data into Oracle database for advanced analytics. The Oracle Exadata database machine provides extreme performance for both data warehousing and online transaction processing (OLTP) applications. Oracle Exalytics In-Memory machine uses in-memory technology to deliver fast analytics, data visualization, and performance management, complementing the Exadata system. In combination with ZFS Storage Appliances and Pillar Data System, users can implement a robust and scalable data management infrastructure for all kinds of data.
“Each of these systems consists of integrated hardware and software, preconfigured, pre-tested and engineered for a certain class of data management requirements,” said Kapil Sood, vice president, systems, Oracle India. “This unique Big Data approach from Oracle relieves customers off the integration involved in assembling a suitable set of hardware and software components to create big data architecture. In addition, it allows customers to leverage commercial quality support with the entire system being supported by a single vendor.”
