Load Data from the Azure DataMarket to Hadoop on Azure
Small Bites of Big Data
Cindy Gross, SQLCAT PM
UPDATED Jun 2013: HadoopOnAzure CTP has been replaced by HDInsight Preview which has a different interface and different functionality. Getting Started with Windows Azure HDInsight Service http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/manage/services/hdinsight/get-started-hdinsight/
The first step in analyzing data is acquiring that data. You may have data available from logs, databases, or other internal sources. Or you may need to export data from an external source. In Hadoop on Azure we make it easy to load data from data sources such as the Azure DataMarket, Amazon S3, and the Windows Azure Blog Storage (ASV).
Now your data is loaded and you’ve done a basic test to verify the data looks correct. You’re ready to start using Hive on Hadoop!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this small bite of big data! Look for more blog posts soon on the samples and other activities.
Note: the CTP and TAP programs are available for a limited time. Details of the usage and the availability of the CTP may change rapidly. Screenshots are from the May 2012 version of http://HadoopOnAzure.com.
