Intel buys a slice of Cloudera

Written by Nick Farrell



Big data number cruncher

Intel has made what it has dubbed “a significant investment” in Cloudera and will make the fast-growing startup its preferred distributor of software for crunching Big Data.

Intel’s cash makes it the Cloudera’s single largest strategic shareholder and it comes as Intel looks to expand its server business to make up for falling sales of personal computers. While no one is saying how much Intel has spent, Chipzilla said that he stake in Cloudera is its largest data centre technology investment ever.

Cloudera helps corporate customers manage data through "Hadoop," an open-source software system that can sort and handle the massive amounts of information, increasingly called Big Data, generated through the Internet and mobile devices. Intel said it will promote Cloudera's Hadoop and move away from its own customized version that it had been promoting as optimal for Intel server chips.

Cloudera will now re-engineer Hadoop products to work best with Intel's server chip technology.
