The Demonstration VM “BigDataLite 2.4.1” is now available
for download from OTN. Now, customers and partners can have easy
access to many of our big data software products - all configured in an
integrated VirtualBox environment.
“BigDataLite” is an Oracle VM VirtualBox that contains many key components of Oracle's big data platform, including:
- Cloudera Distribution including Apache Hadoop
- Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition
- Oracle Advanced
Analytics and "R"
- Oracle Data Integrator 12c, Oracle Big Data Connectors
- Oracle NoSQL Database, and more....
It's been configured to run on at least two cores and about +5Gb memory (so this means that your computer should have at least 8Gb total memory). With BigDataLite, you can develop your big data applications and then deploy them to any compatible hardware including the Oracle Big Data Appliance.
To expand this demonstration platform to include OBI and Endeca, you then also download these VMs and inter-connect them. For this you will likely need +16Gb of RAM and at least 4 cores to get them all running. This is targeted at “BIG data analytics”, so giving this integrated platform set +32Gb of RAM and more cores will help you to show it in its’ best light.
