LinuxScribe writes "Oracle has announced a new Big Data Appliance, which will feature Cloudera's Hadoop, shiny hardware, and a price tag that could be more affordable than commodity servers. But Oracle's new Cloudera partner should heed the lessons of Red Hat and what it means to partner with Oracle."

    (caveat - I work for Oracle)

    The reason to use Oracle EL instead of RH is that RH refuses to put a number of bug fixes into place for Oracle products. Oracle submitted thousands (yes, thousands) of bug fixes and were ignored by RH. If you want to run Oracle on RH, run OEL. I've seen many customers who get really mad at Oracle because something doesn't work correctly on RH. There is nothing Oracle can do except recommend a different OS vendor
