If you’ve been unable to keep up with all the competing NoSQL databases that have hit the market over the last several years, you’re not alone. To name just a few, there’s HBase, Cassandra, MongoDB, Riak, CouchDB, Redis, and Neo4J.
To that list you can add Accumulo, an open source database originally developed at the National Security Agency. You may be wondering why the world needs yet another database to handle large volumes of multi-structured data. The answer is, of course, that no one of these NoSQL databases has yet checked all the feature/functionality boxes that most enterprises require before deploying a new technology.
Oracle will be considered a true player in the Big Data market if and only if it invests heavily in its new appliance, contributes to the Hadoop community, and truly supports its customers that want to focus their data management infrastructure around Hadoop (and not around Oracle). I don’t see any chance Oracle will hit even one of these three marks.
