Microsoft to Improve Support for Hadoop

At the SQL PASS Summit on October 12, Microsoft announced two new projects which it will undertake in cooperation with Hortonworks. The two companies plan to release a preview of a Hadoop service for Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing service before the end of the year, and they will release a Hadoop build for Windows Server sometime in 2012. Microsoft had previously announced Hadoop Connectors for its SQL Server and Parallel Data Warehouse products.
