The World’s information is doubling every two years with 1.8 Zetabytes (1,800,000 petabytes) created and replicated in 2011. The scale was unimaginable a few years back. The potential of the insights we can get out of this data is expanding equally fast. This requires us to push the limits of our data platforms and go beyond the traditional models of storage and compute.

Microsoft is embracing Apache Hadoop to enable applications to process petabytes of data using thousands of processing nodes, on both Windows Azure and Windows Server. With the emergence of distributed query, storage, analytics and execution runtimes such as MapReduce, HiveQL, PigLatin, Dryad and others, many customers on premise and on cloud are looking for ways to build scalable insight with the lowest latency and highest quality. Our solution will enable a killer experience based on the core Hadoop technologies combined with the Microsoft stack, by tying together key Microsoft assets such as Office, .NET and the SQL Server suite of products. We are building a service from ground up to provide this experience in Azure. We plan to contribute back to the Apache Software Foundation and become active participants in that part of the open source software community.
