Intel has released new updates to its datacentre software products to improve security and performance for big data management.
The company has also launched a suite of tools that are claimed to simplify installation of machine learning algorithms and advanced analytics, including graph analysis.
New tools include Intel Graph Builder for Apache Hadoop software v2.0, Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop software 3.0, Intel Analytics Toolkit for Apache Hadoop software and the Intel Expressway Tokenization Broker.
Intel Datacenter Software Division vice president and general manager Boyd Davis said some of the leading data-driven companies have invested heavily to create and implement their own big data analytics applications.
"Intel is bringing this capability to market by providing software that is more secure and easier to use so that companies of all sizes can more easily uncover actionable insight in their data," Davis added.
Intel Graph Builder for Apache Hadoop software v2.0 features a set of pre-built libraries that support performance, automated construction of rich graphs representing real-world problems as well as third party graph databases, analytic engines and visualisation tools.
The company will launch the Intel Graph Builder for Apache Hadoop software package for the Intel Distribution in January 2014.
The new Intel Analytics Toolkit for Apache Hadoop software is claimed to allow the companies to adopt machine learning techniques with lesser costs and complexities of deploying predictive modeling tools.
The new toolkit also offers foundation for common algorithms with graphs and network-based clustering based on the domain-specific code.
Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop software 3.0 is based on the performance and encryption features of its predecessors and includes security improvements to the second generation of the Apache Hadoop architecture.
