The Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service provides customers with the NoSQL Database running on a dedicated, engineered systems platform that is easy to deploy and cost effective. The Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service eliminates much of the overhead of running on-premise NoSQL Database by providing a simple solution in the Oracle Cloud that customers can get up and running by navigating through a few setup screens on their web browsers. This service is customer managed, meaning the customer has access to the system and is responsible for managing the NoSQL Database service.
The Oracle NoSQL Database is a distributed key-value database. It is designed to provide highly reliable, scalable and available data storage across a configurable set of systems that function as storage nodes. An application uses the Oracle NoSQL Database to store and retrieve data that is stored on a number of storage devices.
The only feature that is not available in the Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service as compared to the On-Premises version is that data cannot be stored in different Oracle Cloud datacenters at first release. This may change in future releases. The version that is available in the Oracle Cloud is the EE version in terms of functionality. However, at initial release only the Java client can be associated with the Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service. We will expand the list of clients that can be associated in the future.
Any application that requires fast storage and access to any kind of data can use the Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service.
The main web site to start with is http://www.oracle.com/nosql. A technical FAQ can be found here.
By default, the data between the application and the storage nodes is not encrypted, but encryption can be turned on by the user.
Additional information is available here: http://www.oracle.com/ocom/groups/public/@otn/documents/webcontent/1883358.pdf
A 10 Gigabit Ethernet connection is used for communication between the application server and the storage nodes. If an Exadata service is used, an IB connection is possible.
Yes, the Java Cloud Service will be available for association to the Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service at initial release. Other associations will be available at a later time.
Besides the Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service, an Oracle Java Service should be acquired, at a minimum, to run the application. More information on the Oracle Java Cloud Service can be obtained at: https://cloud.oracle.com/java. More information can be found at: https://cloud.oracle.com/acc.
Yes, it is OK to run the application on a system in your own facility or datacenter, and use the Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service. However, Oracle does not recommend this.
For this service, you are given root access to the nodes that you provision. Oracle maintains the hardware, storage, and networking. Oracle will install the Operating Systems and the Oracle NoSQL Database on each of the nodes.
The Oracle Storage Cloud Service enables the movement of data from on premises to the Oracle Cloud, and can be associated with the Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service. The acquisition of data from other sources will reside on the application server and can be installed by the user. The export and import feature can be used to move the data from one Oracle NoSQL Database instance (for example, on-premises) to another (for example, Cloud). See: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/database-technologies/nosqldb/documentation/index.html.
Oracle does not recommend it. The environment has been selected and tuned to running Oracle NoSQL Database.
When the Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service is terminated, customer content will no longer be available on the service instance. The Customer content will remain available in the Oracle Storage Cloud Service for an additional 60 days. During this time, Service Administrators can retrieve and re-organize content on the Storage Cloud Service for collection purposes. After the 60 day period, the Storage Cloud Service will become unavailable and all of customer content will be deleted.
Oracle Enterprise Linux Version 6 will be installed on the storage nodes by default.
The Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service at initial release cannot be expanded. The initial configuration will be set up with 10 shards and a replication factor of 3 (RF = 3).
With 2 servers used for storage nodes, between 40 TB and 60 TB of data can be stored in the Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service.
Although a virtualization layer is running, there is no competition for the CPU when your application is running, so in effect you are running on a physical CPU. Since there is no competition for the CPU’s the performance is predictable for your Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service server.
No. A different service is available, the Oracle Big Data Cloud Service which can be purchased separately from the Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service.
The best place to start is: https://cloud.oracle.com/nosql.
Yes, customers are encouraged to add VPN to the NoSQL service to ensure a secure service consumption. VPN is a component added onto BDCS and is based on IPSec technology. Note that VPN is NOT a free service. It is an additional subscription.
No, your Oracle NoSQL Database Cloud Service will be the only application running on the storage servers, unless you install other software.
