The Oracle NoSQL Database and Big Data Appliance

There’s been a lot of speculation about the announcements coming from Oracle’s OpenWorld event. A first part was revealed during the keynote in the form of an in-memory analytics appliance called Exalytics [2]. But there’s talk about a Big Data Appliance and an Oracle NoSQL database.

Here’re my predictions[1]

  1. Oracle became very aggressive in selling products based on hardware, software, and services. So they’ll announce a Hadoop appliance integrated with an existing Oracle product. It could be either the Oracle Exadata or even the newly announced Exalytics.

    This appliance will place Oracle in competition with all other Hadoop appliance sellers: EMC, NetApp, IBM. Also these days most of the analytics databases try to integrate with Hadoop.

  2. Oracle already has a couple of non-relational solutions in their portfolio: BerkleyDB, TimesTen, Coherence. And they’ve already started to test the NoSQL market by announcing the MySQL and MySQL Cluster NoSQL hybrid systems.

    I don’t expect Oracle NoSQL database to be a new product. Just a rebranding or repackaging of one of the above mentioned ones. Probably the TimesTen.

  3. Oracle will invest more into integrating its line of products with Hadoop. Having both a Hadoop and an in-memory analytics appliance will make them very competitive in this space.

  4. Oracle will extend the support for NoSQLish interfaces (memcached) to its other database products.

What are your predictions?


  1. or speculations  

  2. I’m currently gathering more details about Exalytics.
