An increasing number of enterprises are either currently using or are planning to use cloud deployment models to expand their IT infrastructure for big data. We find that organizations are looking for an open and flexible platform that enables them to deploy big data and Hadoop solutions on-premises, in the cloud and in a hybrid environment.
Providing the enterprise with the best of both worlds, on-premises and cloud, Microsoft and Hortonworks have jointly developed tools to help take advantage of big data in hybrid cloud deployments. Unlike purely on-premises or cloud implementations, Hadoop for Hybrid Cloud gives you benefits of control, flexibility, elasticity, and redundancy. It provides access to a breadth of analytics cloud services.
Check out our resource center where you can find whitepapers, data sheets, videos on how to get started and a direct link to the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) in the Azure Gallery. So that you can quickly deploy a Hadoop cluster and gain access to the Azure Analytic services, such as HDInsight, Azure Machine Learning, and PowerBI to name a few.
