Big data... A big word? Why would you use big data? How would you create intelligence from a pile of seemingly unrelated data? Join AZUG and Sergejus Barinovas, a Lithuanian Windows Azure MVP on a tour along Hadoop on Windows Azure!
Big Data using Hadoop on Windows Azure
It is widely believed big data is one of the 10 most important IT trends in forthcoming 10 years. The major player in big data landscape is distributed processing software called Hadoop. Hadoop has been initially created by Yahoo based on the Google’s Map/Reduce research paper and later adopted by leading companies including Facebook. Great news for all of us – Hadoop is coming to Windows and Windows Azure platforms! That means not only possibility to process massive of data with the power of cloud, but also highly awaited integration with the existing Microsoft BI stack including SQL Server and PowerPivot products. For the first time ever, we can use best of both worlds and have end-to-end solution for the business intelligence over big data.
