Microsoft's got previews of its Apache Hadoop-based solutions for Azure and Windows Server, Azure HDInsight Service and HDInsight Server for Windows.
They're supposed to deliver Apache Hadoop compatibility for the enterprise and simplify the deployment of Hadoop-based solutions. It says they can be used with Excel, PowerPivot for Excel and Power View to extract actionable insights from the data.
Microsoft has also expanded it partnership with Hortonworks, the commercial Hadoop vendor, to give customers access to an enterprise-ready distribution of Hadoop with the newly released solutions.
