Big Data SQL 3.0 is now available!
By: Martin Gubar | Director Product Management
Oracle Big Data SQL 3.0 is now available! This is an exciting milestone for Oracle. With support for Cloudera CDH (both on Big Data Appliance and non-Big Data Appliance), Hortonworks HDP and Oracle Database 12c (both Exadata and non-Exadata) – the benefits derived from unified queries across relational, Hadoop and NoSQL stores can now be achieved across a wide breadth of big data deployments.
Hadoop and NoSQL are rapidly becoming key components of today’s data management platform, and many Oracle Database customers use Hadoop or NoSQL in their organization. Using multiple data management solutions typically lead to data silos, where different people and applications can only access a subset of the data needed. Big Data SQL offers an industry leading solution to deliver one fast, secure SQL query on all data: in Hadoop, Oracle Database, and NoSQL. Big Data SQL leverages both innovations from Oracle Exadata and specific Hadoop features to push processing down to Hadoop, resulting in minimized data movement and extreme performance for SQL on Hadoop.
In summary, Big Data SQL 3.0:
- Expands support for Hadoop platforms – covering Hortonworks HDP, Cloudera CDH on commodity hardware as well as on Oracle Big Data Appliance
- Expands support for database platforms – covering Oracle Database 12c on commodity hardware as well as on Oracle Exadata
- Improves performance through new features like Predicate Push-Down on top of Smart Scan and Storage Indexes
