During January 2015, Oracle Executive Chairman and Chief Technology Officer Larry Ellison announced Oracle’s next-generation engineered systems, the fifth generation X5. The X5 portfolio of Oracle's Engineered Systems includes among others the X5 Big Data Appliance for Hadoop and NoSQL big data jobs.
Big data is by far the most prevalent technology trend today, according to a recent study by consulting firm Capgemini. However, almost 80 percent of organizations have not achieved full-scale production of their big data initiatives.
Oracle Big Data Appliance is a high-performance, secure platform for running diverse workloads on Hadoop and NoSQL systems.
With the addition of Oracle Big Data SQL, Oracle Big Data Appliance extends Oracle’s industry-leading implementation of SQL to Hadoop and NoSQL systems, allowing to use existing SQL skills to query any data source.
