Intel Corporation has announced the availability of Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop software, or Intel Distribution.
The offering, which includes Intel Manager for Apache Hadoop software, is built from the silicon up to deliver performance and improved security features, the company said.
Boyd Davis, vice president and general manager of Intel's Datacenter Software Division, said: "People and machines are producing valuable information that could enrich our lives in so many ways, from pinpoint accuracy in predicting severe weather to developing customized treatments for terminal diseases.
"Intel is committed to contributing its enhancements made to use all of the computing horsepower available to the open source community to provide the industry with a better foundation from which it can push the limits of innovation and realize the transformational opportunity of big data."
Intel is delivering an open platform built on Apache Hadoop that can keep pace with the evolution of big data analytics. The Intel Distribution is the first to provide complete encryption with support of Intel AES New Instructions (Intel AES-NI) in the Intel Xeon processor. By incorporating silicon-based encryption support of the Hadoop Distributed File System, organizations can now securely analyze their data sets without compromising performance, the company added.
The addition of the Intel Manager for Apache Hadoop software also simplifies the deployment, configuration and monitoring of the cluster for system administrators as they look to deploy new applications. Using the Intel Active Tuner for Apache Hadoop software optimal performance is automatically configured to take the guesswork out of performance tuning, the company concluded.
