Demonstration VM “BigDataLite 2.4.1” Available on OTN

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.

Small Steps to Big Data BI&EPM Partner Community Forum January 2014

Open to all OPN partners in EMEA, we are running the Business Analytics Partner Community Forum over two days in London, on 16th and 17th January 2014 - Register Now Here.

This forum entitled “Small Steps to Big Data” will focus on discussing with Partners, how best to exploit the tremendous interest in “Big Data Analytics” and to clarify under what circumstances “R” and “Hadoop” are best deployed, and how these co-exist, integrate with, and extend the capabilities of tools you are already familiar with such as Oracle BI, ODI, Endeca and the Oracle Database. We will consider guidelines to hardware deployments, but the main focus of the forum will be how the software inter-operates: with guest speakers from Cloudera, and other partners who have experience in this field.

On the one hand, I do not think “Big Data=Hadoop”. While on the other, Oracle whole-heartedly embraces useful Open Source innovations such as “R” and “Hadoop”: we are, after all, a big player in Open Source with for example JAVA, NoSql and MySql.

You can download the agenda here.  We will seek to answer questions such as:

· How Big is “Big” ? ... at what size is Hadoop’s MPP approach beneficial ?

· What about “Variety” ? ... how do we digest “Any Data” ?

· Who uses this analytics ? ... a few “Data Scientists” or 100s of “Business Users” ?

· How do you spot a “Big Data Analytics” opportunity ?

· If someone is already using Hadoop, do they want to talk to Oracle ?

· What is NEW, and what is Business-as-Usual ?

Audience: This forum will appeal to CTOs, Solution architects and consultants in Oracle Partners familiar with Oracle’s Business Analytics solutions. We will examine the economics and business cases driving “Big Data Analytics” projects, and dive into the pros-and-cons of technology options available to your customers.

· Day 1 – Thursday 16th Jan. 2014: Starts 11.0 am – Sales and Executive briefing.

o Networking Dinner in Evening

· Day 2 – Friday 17th Jan. 2014: Ends 4.0 pm – Deeper dive technical discussions.
