Oracle NoSQL Database

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.

Data is stored as key-value pairs, which are written to particular storage node(s), based on the hashed value of the primary key. Storage nodes are replicated to ensure high availability, rapid failover in the event of  a node failure and optimal load balancing of queries. Customer applications are written using an easy-to-use Java/C API to read and write data.

Oracle NoSQL Driver links with the customer application, providing access to the data via appropriate storage node for the requested key.  A web based console as well as command line interface is available for easy administration of the cluster.
