Microsoft customers running SQL Server are getting a taste of really big data processing through an injection of Hadoop. The company has released early code that will let Microsoft customers plug the open-source Java architecture from Doug Cutting into SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse for huge data …
Dryad now called LINQ to HPC
Dryad is going to be released as a Windows HPC addon
Looks like Microsoft getting back to its roots of building software that customers want to use instead of the dumb (J++) idea of not providing a JDBC driver.
I expect to see some consultant comparisons of LINQ to HPC vs Hadoop.. where LINQ to HPC will really shine because of the SQL Server Integration Service connection.
Gotta analyze the stuff we already analyzed....in-case the connector changed something?
This sentence makes no sense...
"Microsoft said the connectors would let its customers analyse unstructured data in Hadoop and then pull that back into the SQL Server environments for analysis."
Analyze it in Hadoop then bring it to SQL Server for analysis.... you need to analyze the same data twice?
Perhaps the morons paying microsoft per processor to do things will learn that open source is how you win in this business.
Microsoft apparently has; they figured out how to sell you an operating system for lots of coin and to also market it with open source benefits.
I guess this is what happens when you can no longer outsource to save money you begin to market free solutions to the public.
Apache should boycott this nonsense.
A while back it was communism and a cancer
but now that they can make money with open source, everything is just fine.
Nothing wrong with communism, so long as the dictator at the top is in your pocket...
SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse
Has anyone seen one out in the wild yet?
