Oracle has released an update to its NoSQL Database platform for big data compute clusters.

The company said that the update would allow NoSQL deployments to handle new types of data while increasing compute speeds and scalability.

The NoSQL 2.0 release will allow the unstructured database platform to support additional file types including image and document files. The company believes that the addition will help to expand the reach of the Oracle NoSQL brand in the enterprise space.

Additionally, the company said that it would be improving performance of the NoSQL Database, reducing the time needed to perform operations. In doing so, Oracle believes that it can expand the scalability of the big data platform.

"Oracle NoSQL Database 2.0 provides developers with that ‘last mile’ infrastructure to enable crucial real time interaction between an organization’s applications and its customers,” said Oracle vice president of development Vaishnavi Sashikanth.

"It provides a key mechanism for enterprises to maximise the value of big data."

The release of the NoSQL database comes as Oracle rolls out an update to its Big Data hardware platform. The update includes the addition of Intel's newest Xeon processors.

Complementing the hardware update will be new developer APIs as well as updates to improve manageability. Other updates include the ability to rebalance resources to deal with changes in performance demands.

Oracle also said that it would improve the interoperability for its NoSQL offering. The 2.0 update includes components to better integrate with Oracle's flagship Database offering.
