So you are ready to do a POC, dev/test or deploy a production implementation of Hadoop and want to leverage popular projects like Spark, Storm, or HBase. However, you want to make sure it will scale to the demands of the business while not having a lot of time or hardware to make this case. Come to this session to discover the benefits of deploying Hadoop in the cloud (no hardware to acquire, no hardware maintenance, unlimited elastic scale, and instant time to value). Even if you already deployed Hadoop on-premise, this session will provide best practices for mixing cloud and on-premise implementations together. By the end of this session, we will show you how easy it is to spin up a 32 node Storm cluster and give all attendees a free unlimited 30-day pass to deploy your own Hadoop cluster on Microsoft Azure.

This session is sponsored by Microsoft
