#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 Sqoop in Hadoop story to process structural data

Why Sqoop you need while working on Hadoop-The Sqoop and its primary reason is to import data from structural data sources such as Oracle/DB2 into HDFS(also called Hadoop file system).
To our readers, I have collected a good video from Edureka which helps you to understand the functionality of Sqoop.

The comparison between Sqoop and Flume

The Sqoop the word came from SQL+Hadoop Sqoop word came from SQL+HADOOP=SQOOP. And Sqoop is a data transfer tool. The main use of Sqoop is to import and export the large amount of data from RDBMS to HDFS and vice versa.

Different Types Of Payment Cards

The Credit Card (Shopping): The purpose o this card is to buy any item withing the limit prescribed by banks to cardholder. These cards can have both Magnetic stripe and Chip cards. 
Now a days all banks are issuing credit cards with CHIP and PIN. After entering the PIN by cardholder, then transaction starts for further processing.

The debit (ATM, Cash) card is a relatively new method of payment. It is different from a credit card because the debit cardholder pays with the money available in their bank account, which is debited immediately in real time. A debit card seems to be more dangerous compared to a credit card because the debit card is directly linked to the bank checking account and usually allows ATM cash withdrawals.

On the other hand, it is more protected by the required two-factor authentication (PIN number plus card itself). The real dangerous element of many branded debit cards is that they can be processed as credit cards, without entering the PIN.

The Gift card
