I'm Jason from the Microsoft Big Data Support team. Thanks for reading our blog, and for trying out HDInsight in your own business.
I want to share some new articles Microsoft just published that will be helpful for getting started with HDInsight in your business. To help folks who are not so familiar with the Apache projects, I'll quickly compare to an existing Microsoft SQL Server feature you might have heard of before to help ease the transition.
For even more articles, check out the main HDInsight documentation front page at http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/documentation/services/hdinsight/
Happy Hadooping! Jason Howell
