Submission + - Hadoop helps solve Oracle customers' big data problems (techworld.com)

Oracle offers a range of products to help customers shrink their data, such as Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle Exalytics, said Hurd. However, when it comes to dealing with real Big Data problems, Oracle still relies on Hadoop, the open-source software framework licensed under the Apache v2 license.
