What is Azure HDInsight?
Azure HDInsight is a managed service which allows you to run Apache Hadoop, Spark, HBase and Storm technologies without managing the deployment or configuration. You can deploy these technologies on Windows or Linux cluster and can spin up the cluster in minutes. You can process semi-structured and unstructured data and develop in Java, .Net, Python and more. You can also visualize your data in Excel, Tableau or PowerBI. To learn more about HDInsight, click here.
