"As to why Oracle chose Cloudera, Ozbutun said, "Leaders like to
work with leaders and Cloudera is a leader in Hadoop."
The Oracle Big Data machine is a bit different than a typical
Cloudera Hadoop deployment. Cloudera is a software-based
distribution of Hadoop that can be deployed on hardware while the
Big Data machine is what Oracle refers to as an engineered system.
The Big Data Appliance can have as much as 864 GB of RAM on top of
216 CPU cores and 648 TB of storage. The system uses high-speed 40
Gb/s InfiniBand to connect the nodes inside the system, and it all
runs on top of Oracle Linux.
