Every data platform has its value, and deciding which one will work best for your big data objectives can be tricky—Alex Gorbachev, Oracle ACE Director, Cloudera Champion of Big Data, and Chief Technology Officer at Pythian, has recorded a series of videos comparing the various big data platforms and presents use cases to help you identify which ones will best suit your needs.
Riak and Oracle are completely different platforms. Alex explains that “Oracle database is a very feature-rich platform,” while Riak, Alex explains, “…is a very simple model… with very minimalistic features.” Riak is excellent for a public cloud infrastructure because it provides elasticity and scalability on demand. Learn about more use cases from Alex’s video Riak vs. Oracle.
