Intel Releases Hadoop Distribution Optimized For Xeon Processors

On Tuesday, Intel announced the release of a Hadoop distribution optimized for its own Xeon processors with a value proposition based on performance and security. Built “from the silicon up,” the distribution delivers encryption for Intel Xeon processors with support for Intel AES-NI instructions. Native support for encryption means that organizations can safely manage storage and analytics on petabytes of data without leveraging 3rd party encryption software. Moreover, the distribution has also been optimized for superior performance by way of enhancements to the networking and IO components of the Xeon processor platform. As a result of the optimization of Hadoop for Intel’s Xeon processors, an analysis of one terabyte of data which usually took four hours can now be completed in seven minutes on Intel’s distribution of Hadoop. The product also features management tools such as the Intel Manager for Apache Hadoop and the Intel Active Tuner for Apache Hadoop. The Intel Manager for Apache Hadoop streamlines deployment and monitoring of Hadoop clusters whereas the Intel Active Tuner for Apache Hadoop configures the cluster to ensure optimal performance.
