Reveal new insights and drive better decision making with Azure HDInsight, a Big Data solution powered by Apache Hadoop. Surface those insights from all types of data to business users through Microsoft Excel.
Start using HDInsight
Quickly build a Hadoop cluster in minutes when you need it, and delete it when your work is done. Choose the right cluster size to optimize for time to insight or cost. Seamlessly integrate HDInsight into your existing analysis workflows with Azure PowerShell and Azure Command-Line Interface.
Based on 100% Apache Hadoop, HDInsight enables your big data solutions to run in Azure. In addition, with Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), you can also run your big data applications on Windows Server or Linux. This flexibility is unique in the industry and allows you to take advantage of existing Apache Hadoop projects including Apache Pig, Hive, Sqoop and much more.
Empower users to gain actionable insights by analyzing unstructured data from HDInsight in Microsoft Excel. Mash up results from HDInsight with data from internal, external, relational and non-relational sources. Use Microsoft Excel’s advanced technology such as Power Query, PowerPivot and Power View to perform dynamic analysis on the combined data set. Map your data easily with Power Map, a powerful 3D mapping tool in Excel 2013.
For developers, HDInsight offers programmability with your choice of language, including Java, .NET, and other languages. .NET developers can use the power of language-integrated query with LINQ to Hive. Database developers can take advantage of existing SQL skills to query and transform data through Hive.
Gain operational insight and deeper understanding of your customer behavior through rich log processing. Store your logs in Blob Storage, use HDInsight to do analytics on your logs ranging from basic aggregation to sophisticated machine learning and data mining. Combine and mash up analytics over logs and other datasets. Further refine and mash up with Power Query. Visualize your data by using PowerPivot, Power View, and Power Map in Excel.
Today, use Azure to save all of your data in its raw form with no pre-defined schema or pre-processing at a low cost. Blob Storage provides a flexible medium for all data types such as logs, telemetry, and social streams. In the future, tap into historical data using HDInsight to answer new business questions.
Discover hidden patterns in your data by using smart machine-learning algorithms from the Mahout library with HDInsight. Apply data clustering to find natural segments, or train predictive models to forecast trends in your data.
Provision an HDInsight cluster, run a MapReduce job on it, and then present the output in Excel.
