What is Intel doing in the Hadoop business?

In case you forgot, Intel offers a distribution of Hadoop. Tony Baur, Principal Analyst at Ovum, explains why Intel created this distribution:

The answer is that Hadoop is becoming the scale-out compute pillar of Intel’s emerging Software-Defined Infrastructure initiative for the data center – a vision that virtualizes general- and special-purpose CPUs powering functions under common Intel hardware-based components. The value proposition that Intel is proposing is that embedding serving, network, and/or storage functions into the chipset is a play for public or private cloud – supporting elasticity through enabling infrastructure to reshape itself dynamically according to variable processing demands.

Theoretically it sounds possible. But as the other attempt to explain Intel’s Hadoop distribution, I don’t believe this one either. Unfortunately I don’t have a good one myself, so I’ll keep asking myself.
