Public Preview: Hortonworks and Cloudera images in the Marketplace

28 October 2014

You now have the ability to run your Big Data Hadoop workloads as a preconfigured Azure VM, using your choice of Cloudera Enterprise or Hortonworks HDP operating on Linux. Both Cloudera and Hortonworks options are available in the Marketplace, allowing you to spin up a full distribution of your preferred Hadoop offering. All images in the Marketplace are Microsoft Azure Certified and have been tested to ensure capability with the Microsoft cloud platform. This offer is the result of the ongoing partnership between Microsoft and Hortonworks, plus a newly announced partnership with Cloudera. It also complements our current Hadoop-as-a-service offering, Azure HDInsight, which provides a managed PaaS experience for our customers. For more information, please visit the Marketplace page.
