Oracle releases new database for real-time big data workloads

New platform enables management of data from web, social media and smart meters.

By CBR Staff Writer

Oracle has released NoSQL Database 2.0, a highly scalable, low latency, key-value database for real-time big data workloads.

The new release provides support for storage and retrieval of large objects, as well as dynamic elasticity and automatic rebalancing for allocating storage and compute resources, Oracle said.

Integrated with both Oracle Database and Hadoop environments, Oracle NoSQL Database 2.0 is designed to fit into an enterprise IT stack, the company said.

Oracle NoSQL Database 2.0, a key component of Oracle’s Big Data Platform, is an enterprise grade, key-value database with flexible transaction models.

Oracle claims that with the new release, customers can manage high velocity transactional data generated by web-based applications, social media, sensors, smart meters and communications services.

Built using Oracle Berkeley DB as the underlying storage engine, Oracle NoSQL Database 2.0 will enable customers to build many mission-critical applications on Berkeley DB.

Oracle e-DBA Technology Director James Anthony said the high availability, rapid scaling and enterprise support were critical for e-DBA, so the company reduced planned implementation times by 75%, deploying much earlier than expected. "As a Specialized Oracle Platinum Partner, we are looking to further grow our expertise with Oracle NoSQL Database and help other customers take advantage of business opportunities with big data," said Anthony.
