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.

Please come and learn about the importance of big data and map/reduce technic, get understanding of Hadoop architecture and all heavy-lifting it does for you. See the power of Hadoop on Windows Azure: management, integration with the Azure Storage and Amazon S3 Storage, interactive JavaScript console, possibility to spin tens of machines in less than minute and track the progress in real-time. Finally, I will demonstrate end-to-end integration with the Microsoft BI stack.
