October 17, 2011 - 0 Comments

At the recently concluded Oracle OpenWorld 2011, Cisco announced a comprehensive “Oracle NoSQL Database” Solution on Cisco UCS that helps organizations deploy Big Data solutions quickly, with configurations that scale easily and predictably as demand dictates. Cisco UCS is the first platform partner certified for “Oracle NoSQL Database” and we are very excited about that.

The Cisco solution for Oracle NoSQL database is fully tested, certified and designed to meet your scalability requirements with a modular, easy-to-deploy Cisco UCS  infrastructure that accelerates time-to-value and reduces risk.

Oracle NoSQL Database is a new product from Oracle – a distributed, highly-available key-value storage platform for large-volume, latency-sensitive applications or web services. It is built based on Oracle Berkeley DB Java Edition High Availability storage engine. It can provide fast, reliable, distributed storage to applications that need to integrate with extract, transform, and load (ETL) processing.

The  Joint Ciso-Oracle solution on Cisco UCS platform offers enterprise robustness and stability with the Oracle NoSQL database as the underlying storage engine . The solution is based on the proven data center architecture using Cisco UCS™ C-Series Rack-Mount Servers powered by Intel® Xeon® processors. Customers can choose to deploy Cisco UCS C200 M2 or Cisco UCS C210 M2 servers depending on their business needs. Cisco Nexus® switches support the high-bandwidth and low-latency needs of Big Data solutions, improving infrastructure agility and scalability at lower costs, without arbitrary restrictions.
