Oracle and the Apache Hadoop Community

Oracle embraced Apache Hadoop this week with the announcement of the Oracle Big Data Appliance that includes an open source distribution of Apache Hadoop.

We welcome Oracle to the Apache Hadoop community and look forward to their participation in the growing Hadoop ecosystem.  We hope that Oracle will commit to using the official releases of Hadoop from the Apache Foundation.  We believe that such a commitment will allow their customers to extract the most possible value from their Hadoop Appliances and facilitates the rapid growth of the Hadoop ecosystem.
