Session: Big Time: Introducing Hadoop on Azure
Friday 14.10 - 15.00
Room: Double Rainbow
In the last couple of years Hadoop has become synonymous with Big Data. This framework is so vast and popular that Microsoft recently announced, for the first time in its history, that it is going to invest in this large-scale, open-source project as its solution for Big Data. In this session we'll learn how Hadoop works on Windows Azure including an exploration of different storage options, e.g., AVS and S3, how Hadoop on Azure integrates with other cloud services, understanding key scenarios for Hadoop in the Microsoft ecosystem, and discovering Hadoop’s role in a cloud environment.
