Windows Azure Overview

Windows Azure is a platform supporting a comprehensive set of PaaS and IaaS cloud services. These range from core services such as compute and storage to higher-level features such as Windows Azure Active Directory and Windows Azure Mobile Services. This session will provide a quick overview of Windows Azure providing the context for the discussion of Big Data.


Big Data and HDInsight

Microsoft has developed HDInsight – a 100% Apache-compatible version of Hadoop that can be used as a Windows Azure service or deployed into a Windows Server private cloud. With HDInsight, Microsoft has integrated the Hadoop ecosystem – MapReduce, Pig, Hive, Sqoop, etc. – with its existing Business Intelligence services. This session will show how Big Data can revolutionize your business and specifically how the Windows Azure HDInsight Service can enhance your business-intelligence capability.

10:45AM-11:00AM Break

Demonstrations + Q&A

The Windows Azure HDInsight Service supports various techniques for invoking Apache Hadoop services. This session will provide demonstrations of the various features and how they are implemented in the Windows Azure environment. It will also provide time for Q&A.

12:15PM-12:30PM Close and evaluation

I hope to see some of you there.
