Oracle, Cloudera Team Up On Hadoop Appliance 44

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."

    Ellison's strategy sounds too much like, that of Redmond's finest. Problem is, Oracle is getting too big in the datacenter landscape. He has oracle, which is the de-facto database for most any organization who wants accountability and have money to spend. He has hardware (SUN) which still has the biggest footprint in data centers after X86. He has Oracle Linux which is, for all intents and purposes, Red-Hat EL. The only thing he did not have was something to handle large, unstructured data, likes of TereData and Cloudera/Hadoop is serving it on a silver platter. Who is going to stop the Oracle wave, I don't know. Oracle is becoming a monopoly, much worse than Google or Microsoft in my opinion. Where are the regulators who blocked the AT&T and T-Mobile merger (Kudos to them by the way). We need them right here, right now.

The person who can smile when something goes wrong has thought of someone to blame it on.
