Deployment Guide provides step-by-step instructions for download and deployment.

Technical Requirements:

  • Dedicate 2 cores, 5 GB memory and 50 GB disk space to the virtual machine
  • Install will require ~73GB disk space including temporary files
md5sum.txt (855 bytes)

To get started:

  • Download and install Oracle VM VirtualBox plus its Extension Pack and 7-zip
  • Download each of the 7-zip files
  • Run the 7-zip extractor on the BigDataLite411.7z.001 file only. This will create the BigDataLite411.ova VirtualBox appliance file
  • In VirtualBox, import BigDataLite411.ova
  • Start BigDataLite-4.11
  • Log in as oracle/welcome1

After starting the VM, double click the Refresh Samples desktop shortcut. This will download the latest content to the VM - including patches and new samples. See the Deployment Guide for details.

Cloudera JDBC Drivers Download and install the Cloudera JDBC drivers to enable Oracle SQL Developer and Data Modeler to connect to Hive.  Check out this blog post for details on how it works.

Getting Started

You can load your own data into the VM or use the Oracle MoviePlex demo data that's provided. Oracle has created videos, sample code and hands-on labs based on Oracle MoviePlex that will help you learn how to develop big data applications using Oracle's big data platform. All of the collateral used to develop this application is included in the VM.

Oracle MoviePlex

Oracle MoviePlex is a fictitious on-line movie streaming company. Customers log into Oracle MoviePlex where they are presented with a targeted list of movies based on their past viewing behavior. Because of this personalized experience and reliable and fast performance, customers spend a lot of money with the company and it has become extremely profitable :).
