Oracle Big Data Discovery version 1.1 includes major new functionality as well as hundreds of enhancements, providing new value for customers and addressing key feedback from the 1.0 release. Highlights and benefits include:
- More Hadoop: Big Data Discovery now runs on Hortonworks HDP 2.2.4+, in addition to Cloudera CDH 5.3+. That makes BDD the first Spark-based big data analytics product to run on the top two Hadoop distributions, significantly expanding the user community. In addition, the changes that enable BDD to run on Hortonworks also make it easier to port to other distributions, paving the way for even broader community in the future. For Cloudera CDH, customers have the option to run BDD 1.1 on the Oracle Big Data Appliance as part of an Engineered System or commodity hardware; for Hortonworks HDP, customers can run BDD on commodity hardware.
- More data: Customers can now access enterprise data sources via JDBC, making it easy to mash up trusted corporate data with big data in Hadoop. BDD 1.1 elegantly handles changes across all this data, enabling full refreshes, incremental updates, and easy sample expansions. All data is live, which means changes are reflected automatically in visualizations, transformations, enrichments, and joins. BDD 1.1 includes all Oracle Endeca Information Discovery functionality and more.
