Intel, Cloudera to Partner on Hadoop

The chipmaker will stop working on its own Hadoop distribution and invest in Cloudera.


Intel and Cloudera have announced plans to work together on a new Hadoop-based big data platform. As part of the agreement, Intel will stop working on its own Hadoop project and throw its support—and money—into Cloudera's efforts. According to Intel, the deal represents its largest data center technology investment ever. And as a result, Intel will become Cloudera's largest strategic shareholder and will have a seat on the cloud computing firm's board.

The two firms plan "to build a world-class, enterprise-ready platform that everybody can build their big data solutions from," said Intel CEO Brian Krzanich.

Intel's Diane Bryant added, "We expect to accelerate industry adoption of the Hadoop data platform and enable companies to mine their data for insights that inform the business."
