|Microsoft makes available its Azure-based Hadoop service |
Microsoft's cloud-based distribution of Hadoop -- which it has been developing for the past year-plus with Hortonworks -- is generally available as of October 28.
"Our vision is how do we bring big data to a billion people," said Eron Kelly, Microsoft's SQL Server General Manager. "We want to make the data and insights accessible to everyone."
Making the Hadoop big-data framework available in the cloud, so that users can spin up and spin down Hadoop clusters when needed is one way Microsoft intends to meet this goal, Kelly said.
