Keywords:Intel? Cloudera? Apache Hadoop?

Intel Corporation and Cloudera have entered into a collaborative agreement to accelerate adoption of big data solutions by leveraging the former's Xeon technology and the latter's enterprise analytic data management software.

The agreement also involves a significant equity investment from Intel, making it Cloudera's largest strategic shareholder and a member of its board of directors. This is the chip giant's largest data centre technology investment to date.

Cloudera will develop and optimise Cloudera's Distribution including the open source Apache Hadoop (CDH) for Intel architecture and support a range of next-generation technologies including Intel fabrics, flash memory and security. In turn, Intel will market and promote CDH and Cloudera Enterprise to its customers as its preferred Hadoop platform.

The chip giant will focus its engineering and marketing resources on the joint roadmap. The optimisations from its Distribution for Apache Hadoop/Intel Data Platform (IDH/IDP) will be integrated into CDH and IDH/IDP and will be transitioned after v3.1 release at the end of March.

The collaboration with Cloudera is expected to enhance Intel's data centre and IoT technology initiatives by enabling customers to manage and analyse machine-generated data from a variety of sources, spanning sensors to gateways and a range of devices.

Both companies promise to remain committed to the open source community that has been the driving force behind Hadoop. They will also execute joint go-to-market strategies that include coordinated product, channel and sales programs.
