hi,

What is the component/application for Oracle to do big data analysis?

What is the Oracle product for AI and data scientist research ?

when I look at this:

https://www.oracle.com/artificial-intelligence/platform.html

it said:

Additional libraries and tools include: Jupyter, pandas, scikit-learn, Pillow, OpenCV, and NumPy.
Deep learning frameworks include: TensorFlow, Keras and Caffe.
Elastic AI and Machine Learning Infrastructures include NVIDIA, Flash Storage, and Ethernet.

.

which component is free and no issue with Oracle DB. ?

I know very little about AI and what machine learning products are out there.

From the link you provided, those appear to be services you can access from Oracle's Cloud.

this is what i researched yesterday:

1) Big data applicatant. (NoSQL + HDFS, Hadoop run inside)
2) Oracle Exalytics in RAM machine (analysis tools)
3) Exadata. (Oracle DB) with in database analytics.

this is the WHOLE picture, surely all CHARGE separately, right? you have a price list don't you .

"  One problem with these systems is they are not easily upgradable."

tks.  just like apple stuff.

"(take out the old system and replace with a new bigger one, nothing in place)."

should be

"Seems like a waste of money to overbuy on system size, but it has to do with the degree of parallelism that can be achieved with more hardware. "

yeah. a lot of money on that.

The reason for no upgrade in place is it is very difficult to do.  Think about it.  You have to bring in another rack of equipment and then attach it to all the other racks.  Then redistribute the data.  Takes a really long time and has a tendency to have issues.

Bringing in a whole new system that was put together and already tested, then disassembled and brought on site is a much safer way of doing things.  Especially if the existing system is older and newer versions of hardware are being used, then you have untested configurations, and trying to figure out what went wrong in one of those is impossible.

I know for sure that they were working on trying to do them, but I don't know if they ever got them fully working.  And, I think they would only consider them if you were running the latest hardware.  You couldn't add a rack to a system that was a few years old, things just wouldn't talk to each other correctly.

but you are referring to oracle to oracle ,right ? should be pretty easy !

Not software upgrade.  Hardware upgrade.  Adding another rack of hardware isn't as simple as you may think it is.

understood.

for MS SQL, quite easy ! procedure quite straight forward ! I do it a lot of time for MS SQL.

It is quite easy for an Oracle database as well.  Not so for Exadata, or any of the other purpose built hardware systems.

tks,

but why ?

Because this is not simply a computer connected to some disk drives.  When you add another rack of storage, you are actually adding storage and more computers to the hardware system.  All of the interconnects between the computers need to be set up and tested.  There is a ton of work to be done and from what I know of working for a company that made these, it doesn't go well.  It is a lot easier to build a system from scratch and test and install it than to do an in place upgrade.  Too many things need to be unplugged and too many things need to be plugged in, all in the right ports so everything knows where everything else is.  Even after tons of testing and documentation, the in place upgrades still have problems and run into multi-day processes of debugging.

For instance, the company that I worked for, when you add a rack of storage, what you are actually adding is 8 blades and 128 drives.  These are massively parallel systems, not symmetric multiprocessing (which is the type of parallel processing most people are familiar with), so those 8 new blades need to be able to talk to all the other blades in the system and the 2 controlling computers.

so this is about HW but not SW, right ? I though you are talking about SW, oracle.

"Too many things need to be unplugged and too many things need to be plugged in, all in the right ports so everything knows where everything else is.  "

this is more like data center migration . cable management is a huge task!
