EMBEDDED WORLD, Nuremberg, Germany, Feb. 26, 2013 – Intel Corporation today announced several new advancements in support of the Intel Intelligent Systems Framework, including a ecosystem growth, framework-ready products and two new software tools designed to help reduce time-to-market and costs for developers.


Today, billions of devices are connecting to each other directly and through the cloud and generating enormous volumes of data in the process. A huge portion of the growth of "big data" comes from intelligent systems — a category of securely managed machines that autonomously connect to the Internet, execute native or cloud-based applications and analyze the data collected. To simplify the deployment of intelligent systems, which comprise what is frequently called the "Internet of Things," Intel recently released the Intel Intelligent Systems Framework. The framework is a set of interoperable specifications designed to address connecting, managing and securing intelligent devices in a consistent and scalable manner.


Since the Intel Intelligent Systems Framework was announced in September 2012, the embedded ecosystem has used it to develop and deploy more than 50 products in the communications, transportation, medical, mobile, industrial and retail industries.


"In just under 6 months since the Intel Intelligent Systems Framework was released, we've seen impressive support and adoption from this rapidly expanding ecosystem," said Jim Robinson, general manager, Segments and Broad Market Division at Intel. "The framework provides a consistent and scalable way for the embedded community to develop intelligent systems and shift resources from the development phase for extracting greater value from their data."


As the intelligent systems ecosystem has grown, so has the network of companies in support of the Intel Intelligent Systems Framework. ADLINK and Eurotech have joined an existing and growing network of system vendors, Internet service providers, system integrators and cloud-to-device services that build upon the Intel Intelligent System Framework and both companies will be demonstrating their Intelligent System Framework ready demos in the Intel booth. Current ecosystem companies include Advantech*, Arrow Electronics*, Avnet*, Axeda*, Dell*, Digi International*, Kontron*, McAfee*, Portwell*, WebHouse* and Wind River*.


To further enable the development of high-performance, scalable systems for industrial control, Intel unveiled a new solution that enables industrial designs built on Intel® architecture and the Intel Ethernet Controller I210 to achieve the highest level of PROFINET IO performance, enabling even the most demanding industrial applications with standard off-the-shelf components and platforms. The new solution is based on KW-Software's PROFINET software stacks which are optimized for the Intel Ethernet Controller I210.


In an effort to help reduce development costs and time-to-market, Intel is releasing two new software tools – the Intel® System Studio and the Intel® Firmware Support Package to support ISF.


Intel® System Studio is a new software suite that integrates multiple development tools into one comprehensive package, enabling embedded and mobile software developers to quickly and efficiently deliver reliable systems based on Intel processors and SoCs. Intel System Studio includes powerful system and application debuggers to help get systems running, a memory and thread error checker to strengthen reliability and tools to optimize code that can boost power efficiency and performance.


The Intel Firmware Support Package provides low-level Intel CPU, Intel chipset and memory firmware initialization capability using a standardized interface. Previous firmware solutions for embedded devices were highly customized and offered no backward compatibility, creating an inability to scale products to meet rapid growth. The Intel Firmware Support Package can be easily integrated into any boot loader of the developer's choice, such as coreboot*, Wind River VxWorks*, BIOS, Real-Time Operating Systems, Linux* and open source firmware.


The Intel System Studio single user license is available for $3,499 and a floating license (one seat) is available for $5,299. The Intel® Firmware Support Package and the Intel Intelligent Systems Framework are available free of charge. More information on the Intel Intelligent Systems Framework is available online.

  • New software offering now available with more than 20 partners supporting the launch.
  • Intel is committed to strengthening the Apache Hadoop* framework by contributingplatform enhancements into open source in collaboration with the developer community.
  • Intel is investing research and capital in disruptive technologies to spur innovation and enable the industry to build analytic solutions based on Apache Hadoop* software.



SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 - To ensure that more organizations and people can use the vast amounts of data being generated, collected and stored everyday - also known as "big data" - Intel Corporation announced the availability of Intel® Distribution for Apache Hadoop* software (Intel® Distribution). The offering, which includes Intel® Manager for Apache Hadoop* software, is built from the silicon up to deliver industry-leading performance and improved security features.


The ability to analyze and make sense of big data has profound potential to transform society by enabling new scientific discoveries, business models and consumer experiences. Yet, only a small fraction of the world is able to extract meaning from all of this information because the technologies, techniques and skills available today are either too rigid for the data types or too expensive to deploy.


Hadoop* is an open source framework for storing and processing large volumes of diverse data on a scalable cluster of servers that has emerged as the preferred platform for managing big data. With even more information coming from billions of sensors and intelligent systems also on the horizon, the framework must remain open and scalable as well as deliver on the demanding requirements of enterprise-grade performance, security and manageability.


"People and machines are producing valuable information that could enrich our lives in so many ways, from pinpoint accuracy in predicting severe weather to developing customized treatments for terminal diseases," said Boyd Davis, vice president and general manager of Intel's Datacenter Software Division. "Intel is committed to contributing its enhancements made to use all of the computing horsepower available to the open source community to provide the industry with a better foundation from which it can push the limits of innovation and realize the transformational opportunity of big data."


Performance and Security: The Intel Difference

Intel is delivering an innovative open platform built on Apache Hadoop* that can keep pace with the rapid evolution of big data analytics. The Intel Distribution is the first to provide complete encryption with support of Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) in the Intel® Xeon® processor. By incorporating silicon-based encryption support of the Hadoop Distributed File System*, organizations can now more securely analyze their data sets without compromising performance.


The optimizations made for the networking and IO technologies in the Intel Xeon processor platform also enable new levels of analytic performance. Analyzing one terabyte of data, which would previously take more than 4 hours to fully process, can now be done in 7 minutes1 thanks to the data-crunching combination of Intel's hardware and  the Intel Distribution. Considering Intel estimates that the world generates 1 petabyte (1,000 terabytes) of data every 11 seconds or the equivalent of 13 years of HD video, the power of Intel technology opens up the world to even greater possibilities.


For example, in a hospital setting, the intelligence derived from this data could help improve patient care by helping caregivers make quicker and more accurate diagnoses, determine effectiveness of drugs, drug interactions, dosage recommendations and potential side effects through the analysis of millions of electronic medical records, public health data and claims records. Strict guidelines also exist globally for protecting health and payment information, making it imperative to maintain security and privacy while performing analytics.


The addition of the Intel® Manager for Apache Hadoop* software also simplifies the deployment, configuration and monitoring of the cluster for system administrators as they look to deploy new applications. Using the Intel® Active Tuner for Apache Hadoop* software optimal performance is automatically configured to take the guesswork out of performance tuning. Until now, this required a specialized understanding of each application's use of system resources along with the Hadoop configuration and performance benchmarks.


Intel is working with strategic partners to integrate this software into a number of next-generation platforms and solutions, and to enable deployment in public and private cloud environments. Partners supporting the launch include 1degreenorth*, AMAX*, Cisco*, Colfax Corporation*, Cray*, Datameer*, Dell*, En Pointe*, Flytxt*, Hadapt*, HStreaming*, Infosys*, LucidWorks*, MarkLogic*, NextBio*, Pentaho*, Persistent Systems*, RainStor*, Red Hat*, Revolution Analytics*, SAP*, SAS*, Savvis, a CenturyLink company*, Silicon Mechanics*, Simba Technologies*, SoftNet Solutions*, SuperMicro Computer, Inc.*, Tableau Software*, Teradata*, T-Systems*, Wipro* and Zettaset*.


A Comprehensive Approach to Big Data

The new software offering expands Intel's extensive portfolio of datacenter computing, networking, storage and intelligent systems products. The recently introduced Intel® Intelligent Systems Framework, a set of interoperable solutions designed to enable connectivity, manageability and security across intelligent devices in a consistent and scalable manner, sets the foundation to help to gather, analyze and deliver valuable information for end-to-end analytics from the device to the datacenter.


Additionally, Intel continues to invest in research and capital to advance the big data ecosystem. Intel Labs is at the forefront of advanced analytics research which includes the development of Intel® Graph Builder for Apache Hadoop* software, a library to construct large data sets into graphs to help visualize relationships between data. Intel Graph Builder is optimized for the Intel Distribution to help reduce development time by eliminating the need to develop large amounts of custom code. Meanwhile, Intel Capital has been making major investments in disruptive big data analytics technologies including MongoDB company 10gen and big data analytics solution provider Guavus Analytics.
