Intel Launches own Hadoop Distribution (2013-02-27)

Intel deploys now its own Hadoop. More information you can find here, or here. Intel hosts its source code at github. For official Intel information go to the Intel Hadoop page.

Intel also approaches security questions with Project Rhino: "As Hadoop extends into new markets and sees new use cases with security and compliance challenges, the benefits of processing sensitive and legally protected data with all Hadoop projects and HBase must be coupled with protection for private information that limits performance impact. Project Rhino is our open source effort to enhance the existing data protection capabilities of the Hadoop ecosystem to address these challenges, and contribute the code back to Apache."
