As for Intel, what if this investment also sealed an exclusive deal for Hadoop-centric Cloudera-supported Intel-powered appliance?
I didn’t know about the existing Dell-Cloudera-Intel partnership, but this is re-inforced with the recent announcement of an in-memory appliance.
Since 2011, Cloudera, Dell and Intel have built pre-validated reference architectures for Hadoop. […]
The Dell In-Memory Appliances for Cloudera Enterprise is yet another proof point of the collaboration and synergies between the three companies. As the first of a family of appliances, it includes leading Dell hardware, Cloudera’s enterprise data hub -based on Cloudera Enterprise, Intel architecture for fast processing, and ScaleMP’s Versatile SMP (vSMP) architecture to aggregate multiple x86 servers into a single virtual machine to create large memory pools for in-memory processing.
