Ready for Analysis: Advancing Enterprise Database Connectivity to Hadoop with Intel and Oracle

We at Intel believe better business insights start with a fast, reliable and holistic flow of data in data centers. Yet one of the greatest challenges facing organizations working with Apache Hadoop* is integrating data stored in existing infrastructure with data stored in a Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). This is why Intel has partnered with Oracle to certify the compatibility between the Intel® Distribution for Apache Hadoop* (IDH) and Oracle Big Data Connectors*. In a business world where connectivity to data is critical, pairing IDH and Oracle Big Data Connectors together helps enterprise IT drive business transformation through big data, ensure security without compromising performance, and leverage future open source analytics innovation.

In a business world where connectivity to data is critical, pairing IDH and Oracle Big Data Connectors together helps enterprise IT achieve a complete database strategy. Apache Hadoop offers a powerful tool for storing and processing large and diverse data sets, yet the lack of integrated support for strong data security and graph analytics has been a serious roadblock to implementation for many businesses. Oracle Big Data Connectors software acts as a bridge for data processing in Hadoop along with the rest of an enterprise’s data residing in Oracle Database 11g Release 2* or Oracle Database 12c*. As a result, database administrators can use familiar tools to integrate big data with existing data stored in an Oracle Database.

Note: We plan on certifying IDH 3.1 with OBDC 3.x once commercially available.

Integration with Intel® Graph Builder for Apache Hadoop* Software v2 simplifies creation of graph data models, enabling organizations to focus on solving business problems instead of formatting data. For organizations leveraging the next-generation power efficiency of Intel® Xeon® processor E5 2600 v2 product family in their data centers, IDH is the only distribution built with the hardware in mind to deliver balanced performance. Pairing Intel Xeon processors, Intel® Solid-State Drives (Intel® SSD) and 10 Gb Intel® Ethernet solutions with IDH offers a robust platform where optimized performance drives faster insights.
