With the announcement of the Oracle Big Data Appliance, Oracle also comes up with some really cool technology stack which is being termed as Oracle Big Data Connectors (OBDC). This piece of software can be used with both Oracle Big Data Appliance and other Apache Hadoop-based systems.
At this time there are three Hadoop appliances in the market:Oracle’s Big Data appliance, Netapp’s Hadooplers and EMC’s Greenplum DCA. It looks like a lot of companies that did not already adopt Hadoop in 2011, are looking to do so in 2012, and some of them may be considering going with an appliance. I want to take a look at some of the reasons a company will be interested in a Hadoop appliance, and what are the differences between the different appliances.
