Oracle has incorporated auditing and authentication features into its analytics appliance for enterprises to manage volumes of data and prevent system threats.
Big Data Appliance now includes a pre-configured architecture designed to help organizations integrate data processing platforms Hadoop and NoSQL with business analytics and data warehouse appliances, Oracle said Monday.
Cetin Ozbutun, Oracle senior vice president of data warehousing and big data technologies, said the company made the upgrade to address security and peformance issues when handling large amount of data.
The appliance works to alert users of unauthorized or suspicious activities.
Oracle updated the product to help customers use standard XQuery language to convert XML files stored in a Hadoop cluster running on the infrastructure.
The company also added predictive models to the Hadoop connector for users to gain business insights from big data.
