Building on the recently announced Intel® Distribution for Apache Hadoop* software, the Enterprise Platforms and Services Division (EPSD) announced that it would enable the channel to deliver big data solutions to IT customers. EPSD will offer bundles of Intel server hardware, including motherboards and chassis, with the Intel Distribution to the channel. Customers purchasing the bundle will receive a 30% or more discount versus purchasing the software and hardware components separately. The Intel Distribution has been optimized to run on Intel processors, storage and networking hardware. The combination is designed to deliver the cost-effective performance that the channel needs.
