Preview: Azure HDInsight delivering stream and hybrid processing

15 October 2014

With the public preview of Apache Storm clusters, HDInsight can now also process real-time events. Apache Storm gives users access to an event-processing analytics platform that can reliably process millions of events. So now, users of Hadoop can gain insights as events happen, in addition to insights from past events. We’ve also teamed up with Hortonworks to deliver hybrid data connectors between on-premises and cloud deployments. On-premises Hadoop customers using Hortonworks Data Platform 2.2 can move data from on-premises Hadoop into Azure HDInsight. This gives every on-premises Hadoop customer elastic cloud access for backup, burst capacity, and test/dev. For more information, please visit the Azure HDInsight page.
