#How to run HDInsight Hadoop on windows for data analysis :
HDInsight is Microsoft's implementation of a Big Data solution with Apache Hadoop at its core. HDInsight is 100 percent compatible with Apache Hadoop and is built on open source components in conjunction with Hortonworks, a company focused toward getting Hadoop adopted on the Windows platform.

Basically, Microsoft has taken the open source Hadoop project, added the functionalities needed to make it compatible with Windows (because Hadoop is based on Linux), and submitted the project back to the community. All of the components are retested in typical scenarios to ensure that they work together correctly and that there are no versioning or compatibility issues.

Microsoft's Hadoop-based distribution brings the robustness, manageability, and simplicity of Windows to the Hadoop environment. The focus is on hardening security through integration with Active Directory, thus making it enterprise ready, simplifying manageability through integration with System Center 2012, and dramatically reducing the time required to set up and deploy via simplified packaging and configuration.

These improvements will enable IT to apply consistent security policies across Hadoop clusters and manage them from a single pane of glass on System Center 2012. Further, Microsoft SQL Server and its powerful BI suite can be leveraged to apply analytics and generate interactive business intelligence reports, all under the same roof. For the Hadoop-based service on Windows Azure, Microsoft has further lowered the barrier to deployment by enabling the seamless setup and configuration of Hadoop clusters through an easy-to-use, web-based portal and offering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

Microsoft is currently the only company offering scalable Big Data solutions in the cloud and for on-premises use. These solutions are all built on a common Microsoft Data Platform with familiar and powerful BI tools.

HDInsight is available in two flavors:

Windows Azure HDInsight Service: This is a service available to Windows Azure subscribers that uses Windows Azure clusters and integrates with Windows Azure storage. An Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) driver is available to connect the output from HDInsight queries to data analysis tools.
  • Windows Azure HDInsight Emulator: This is a single-node, single-box product that you can install on Windows Server 2012, or in your Hyper-V virtual machines. 
  • The purpose of the emulator is to provide a development environment for use in testing and evaluating your solution before deploying it to the cloud. You save money by not paying for Azure hosting until after your solution is developed and tested and ready to run. The emulator is available for free and will continue to be a single-node offering.

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.

Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.

You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.

5 Things About AWS EC2 You Need to Focus!

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) - is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction.

The basic functions of EC2... 
It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change.Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios. 
Key Points for Interviews:
EC2 is the basic fundamental block around which the AWS are structured.EC2 provides remote ope…
