(NASDAQ: QSFT) today announced the availability of OraOop 1.1 and OraHive 1.0. These new releases build upon the companies’ partnership to develop, support and distribute Oracle connectivity for Apache Hadoop and includes new support for Oracle RAC deployments.

The OraOop connector provides connectivity between Cloudera’s Distribution for Apache Hadoop (CDH) and Oracle through an interface that allows for bidirectional, scalable and functional data transfer between Oracle databases and Hadoop.

OraOop is the first and only fully supported connector available between Oracle and Apache Hadoop.

“OraOop 1.1 verifies our commitment to making Hadoop easy for enterprises to integrate with as many data sources as possible,” said Ed Albanese, head of business development at Cloudera. “Support for Oracle database platforms is vital for Cloudera customers. Quest Software is a key member of Cloudera’s rapidly growing partner ecosystem and proven experts in providing useful tools to work with Oracle database platforms.”
