Why would I choose “HDP Windows” over the “regular” HDP?
Let’s take this imaginary scenario. My Dev Team is very proficient with the Windows environment: .NET, Powershell, IIS, Visual Studio, etc. But very weak knowledge of Linux. Could “HDP for Windows” allow us to be as efficient as another team using the regular HDP ? For example:
– Admin and Monitor Hadoop using various Windows Management Tools and Framework
– Securing access to Hadoop via Active Directory
– Integrating Pig scripts in Powershell instead of Python
– Writing code using .NET C# (Pig UDFs, MR jobs, HBase Client application, etc.)
If none of the above is possible, then what is the real advantage of “HDP for Windows”? Because very few of our knowledge of Microsoft Dev Tools could be leveraged in this context, if not at all. Would it be actually more productive to learn Linux and work directly with the “regular” HDP distro?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
