No, they make an actual NoSQL database now: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/nosqldb/overview/...

From the data sheet: "Oracle NoSQL Database is built upon the proven Oracle Berkeley DB Java Edition high-availability storage engine". So it's BDBEE…

That is for the data store itself, and doesn't mean that the database is NoSQL or not. MemcacheDB for example is a NoSQL database that uses BerkeleyDB as a datastore. No different than you'd use InnoDB or RethinkDB with MySQL.

Is it significantly different from Riak? They seem very, very similar based on my superficial knowledge.
