Updates to Azure HDInsight
Updated: March 04, 2020
Fully supported distributions of Apache analytics projects such as Spark, Hadoop, and Kafka are now available for HDInsight. Azure customers will benefit from Apache analytics frameworks that are deeply integrated with the Azure platform (storage, networking, security, and monitoring) and optimized for the cloud (agility, performance, and elasticity). All of these innovations added to the Apache projects will be made available under the Apache license. Also, we will soon launch a next generation of HDInsight with requested features, such as improved provisioning and management experience, reserved instance pricing, low-priority VMs, and auto-scale.
