Microsoft HDInsight; Hadoop on Microsoft Windows

  • Feb 28, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • AOL

Microsoft HDInsight

Rajesh Virassamy, Openosmium

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.

Hadoop on Microsoft Windows

Terry Padgett, Hortonworks

The recent release of the Hortonworks Data Platform for Windows allows you to stand up a Hadoop cluster on Windows Server 2008 and 2012 today. We will discuss the new release, the Hadoop ecosystem products contained in the release, installation tips and the future path.

Terry Padgett is a Solution Engineer with Hortonworks working in the Federal and Commercial sectors. He has an extensive background in software engineering and has been working in the Hadoop ecosystem for several years.

    Topic was of interest but actual content was thin - appeared as if products are not mature enough for substantial presentation

    Excellent and timely topics addressing two different ways of connecting WIndows and Haddop-MapReduce 1. Rajesh Virassamy, Openosmium through Azure (only 5 day availability of cluster?) and Terry Padgett, Hortonworks way of connecting with Windows Servers.
    Still one needs to know Windows, VMs, Java rpogramming or Visual Studio tools (TBD) to be able to use desktops and create reasonable demos. SPreadsheet use of Business reports and datainputs was very interesting, both talks were to the point. Congrats!

    Can you be more specific about what local building the Meetup is in? AOL HQ is in NY, and I'm unfamiliar with the local campus.

      The address is above, but here it is again: 22000 AOL Way Dulles, VA 20166. From the Toll Rd. (267) go North on Rt. 28. Take the right side exit on Waxpool Rd. then your first left onto Pacific Blvd. The AOL building has a big orange sign on it and is the first on your right.

      February 28, 2013

    • Sean T.

      And should you take the left exit instead of the right exit, no need to worry, the second left will take you to the same parking garage.

    Sorry, car troubles. :(

  • Jonathan C.

    The meetup will be held at the AOL HQ building on the 5th floor. We will have signage up to help everyone find it. You can park in the garage and enter at the main doors in front. If no one is around to let you in use the intercom and security will buzz you in.
