    What are the differences between HDP 1.1 for Windows and HDInsight Server ?

    Why would I choose one verses the other ?

    Seems like both Microsoft and Hortonworks are offering hadoop for windows …

    Microsoft has two offerings HDInsight Server (Windows Server) and HDInsight Service (Windows Azure)
    You are comparing HDInsight Server with HDP(Horton Data Platform)
    – HDInsight Server uses HDP ( HDInsight stacks above HDP)
    – Apart from providing Hadoop features(Which HDinsight inherits from HDP) HDInsight adds more feature like it
    InteractiveJS (hosted on IIS ) to run your HDFS, Pig commands
    Enable business intelligence tools such as Microsoft Excel, PowerPivot for Excel and Power View to draw data and provide insights using various connector
    You can deploy and manage hadoop clusters using System center etc,

    If you require bare minimum Hadoop on Windows Install HDP if you need more feature like UI(interactive JS) ease of installation… install HDInsight Server

    Hope this clarifies your doubt. :)

    Hi John,

    As far as I undertand it HDP for Windows will continue to be distributed by Hortonworks under that name.

    Thanks,
    Ted.

    Just to get some official clarity on this –

    Assuming that HDInsight refers only to the Azure-based implementation, will Hortonworks Data Platform for Windows continue to be distributed under this name by Hortonworks, or will it be marketed under a different name and distributed by Microsoft?

    At this time… HDInsight Preview feature on Microsoft site only supports single node. HDInsight on Azure does support multiple servers.

    Hi Suaroman,

    HDP for Windows provides an installer for the HDP Stack of components on a multi-node Windows Server environment. HDP for Windows is Generally Available now to run Hadoop clusters on Windows on premise.

    HDInsight Server Single Node Developer Preview, which you linked to, is a Developer Preview. It deploys a single node Hadoop Stack and enables you to develop and experiment with Hadoop.

    Thus, the difference is in the intended usage. HDP for Windows is for multi-node Hadoop clusters on Windows Server. HDInsight Server Preview is meant as a Developer Preview to enable testing and experimentation for the HDInsight Service.

    The actual Hadoop stack components are compatible across HDP for Windows and HDInsight Server.

    Thanks for the replies.
    HDInsight comes as a cloud offering as well as an on-premises server (http://www.microsoft.com/web/gallery/install.aspx?appid=HDINSIGHT-PREVIEW)
    I’m already familiar with HDInsight’s Azure cloud service.

    My question pertains to

    HDInsight Server (< – on premises (not cloud )

    vs.

    HDP for Windows.

    What would be the reasons to choose one verses the other ?

    Hi, Suaroman,

    What B said is correct. HDP is hortonworks on premise solution when you want to install inhouse cluster. HDInsight is MS solution on Azure.

    Found this page for your reference:

    I’m guessing HDP is more for in-house solutions and HDInsight is if you want ready-made Azure based solutions.
