Architecting Big Data Solutions in the cloud

The session covers how to architect big data solutions in Azure. Azure provides different Hadoop clusters types. The session covers the basic understanding of Lambda Architecture and how to build end to end big data solution using Apache Hadoop HDFS, HBase, Hive, Storm and Spark. The session covers how to integrate by building apps using any programming language such as Java, Python, or Scala with HDInsight clusters using various Hadoop integration frameworks and libraries. The session is a jump start for Architects, engineers and DBAs with RDBMS experience who are looking for starting building big data solutions based on Hadoop. The session is a demo driven and will cover the basics of Hadoop open source products.
