Make all your data work for you
Apache Hadoop has evolved quickly beyond its start as a tool for tackling offline analytics of web-scale data to become a powerful platform for data management and processing. Hadoop has shown promise in a number of uses ranging from analyzing social media to detect credit fraud, serving targeted ads and online product placement, data mining genome sequences, improving the efficiency of power grids, and analyzing traffic patterns
Run your analytics on a balanced platform
Apache Hadoop is designed for commonly available hardware. Innovation in processor and system design has enabled mainstream systems to deliver enormous processing power. Hadoop derives maximum benefit from these systems when optimized across compute, storage, and networking resources. The Intel Distribution is built from the silicon up, with the latest Intel processor, storage, and networking hardware components, to ensure that the system performs at optimum performance for the widest range of uses.
