Oracle Big Data SQL Cloud Service has been released!
Big Data SQL is Oracle’s breakthrough approach to simplifying access to big data sources. Oracle Big Data SQL provides the ability to query all data – in Hadoop, NoSQL data stores, or Oracle Database – in a single statement.
Oracle Big Data SQL presents Hadoop and other sources as enhanced external tables. These tables are engineered to transparently map the external semantics of data access – horizontal parallelism, location, and schema – to Oracle internals. This ensures the best possible optimizations for access and native processing throughout.
