Bring all your data together with a data lake

  • Complete, integrated solution

    Deploy a complete, integrated solution, including data management, data integration, and data science, so analytics teams can maximize the value of enterprise data. Customers ingest any data via batch, streaming, or real-time processes and store it in data warehouses or data lakes as needed. Teams then catalog and apply governance to the data so they can use it for analyses, visualizations, and machine learning models. IT teams leverage consistent security policies across data warehouses and data lakes.

  • Easy to manage and operate

    Increase developer productivity with a fully managed, serverless, Apache Spark cluster that is accessible via APIs. Each cluster is automatically provisioned, secured, and shut down to reduce developer workloads. Customers can deploy fully managed Hadoop clusters of any size or shape, then add security and high availability with a single click.

  • Deploy in Oracle Cloud data centers or customer data centers

    Deploy Oracle big data services wherever needed to satisfy customer data residency and latency requirements. Big data services, along with all other Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services, can be utilized by customers in the Oracle public cloud, or deployed in customer data centers as part of an Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer environment.

Migrate your big data workload to OCI—and save.

Smoothly transition to the cloud with OCI Big Data services. Our comprehensive, proven approach supports a hassle-free migration, whether you're using existing data lakes, Spark, Hadoop, Flink, Hive, or other Hadoop components. Migrate to OCI without the need for extensive configuration or integration and with minimal impact on your current environment.
