See how the beta release of Kubernetes on DC/OS 1.10 delivers the most robust platform for building & operating data-intensive, containerized apps. Register now for tech preview.

“Big Data” is undeniably one of the more prevalent buzzwords of the last year or two, and given the scalability inherent to the cloud, it’s a natural fit for Windows Azure. Microsoft's specific foray into this burgeoning technology is the HDInsight service (previously known as Hadoop on Azure).

With HDInsight, Microsoft has become a significant player in the Hadoop ecosystem; moreover, the integration of existing Business Intelligence tools, like Excel’s PowerPivot, makes this technology readily accessible and consumable from the desktop. Join me for this episode for Practical Azure for a tour of the HDInsight offering and a look at the contributions Windows Azure is making back to the open-source community in this area.
