Intel makes 'significant' investment in Hadoop company Cloudera

Agam Shah | March 28, 2014
Intel will market Cloudera's Hadoop distribution over its own.

Cloudera has always developed software for x86 chips but was also at the forefront of development for ARM processors, which is emerging as a threat to Intel's dominant x86 server chips. But with the shift to focusing development on x86 processors, it remains to be seen how much software Cloudera will write for ARM-based servers.

Companies like Oracle and Citrix are contributing code to support the 64-bit version of ARM processors, which are expected to ship from companies like Advanced Micro Devices, Applied Micro and Cavium late this year or early next year.
