This session is about Microsoft embracing the Java technology and the Apache Hadoop with the partnership of Hortonworks. HDInsight, which is Microsoft's Hadoop product runs on both Windows server and on Hadoop on Azure, MSFT's cloud platform. The Microsoft HDInsight offers the similar tools set that is offered by the Hortonworks stack. In addition, this solution integrates well with the Microsoft's BI technologies including PowerPivot, PowerView and Analysis services.
In this session, I'll go over the Microsoft Windows offering and the Azure offering and will provide a soup to nuts demo with data upload from Sql Server using Sqoop, map/reduce job execution, HDFS intermediate file creation and analytics with the BI tools using Hive. . If time permits, we can execute some Pig jobs as well. This will be great opportunity for the MSFT developers to build on their native skills to build Hadoop solutions without really getting into the nuts and bolts of Java.
Rajesh has been working on this solution for the last three months and was tracking it right from its initial announcement at Hadoop Summit at SFO. He is bullish about this MSFT technology offering and thinks MSFT will be able to enhance their big data solution offering with this solution. He would strongly recommend MSFT shops to take a good look at this developer preview offering as they look into other Hadoop distributions.
