#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.

Topologies in Apache Storm the concept you need to know

There are two main reasons why Apache Storm is so popular. The number one is it can connect to many sources. The number two is scalable. The other advantage is fault tolerant. That means, guaranteed data processing.
The map-reduce jobs process the data analytics in Hadoop. The topology in Storm is the real data processor. The co-ordination between Nimbus and Supervisor carried by Zookeeper What are topologiesThe jobs in Hadoop are similar to topology. The jobs run as per schedule defined.In Storm, the topology runs forever.A topology consists of many worker processes spread across many machines. A topology is a pre-defined design to get end product using your data.A topology comprises of 2 parts. These are Spout and bolts.The Spout is a funnel for topology Two nodes in StormMaster Node: similar to Hadoop job tracker. It runs on a daemon called Nimbus.Worker Node: It runs on a daemon called Supervisor. The Supervisor listens to the work assigned to each machine.Master NodeNimbus is re…

Three popular RPA tools functional differences

Robotic process automation is growing area and many IT developers across the board started up-skill in this popular area. I have written this post for the benefit of Software developers who are interested in RPA also called Robotic Process Automation.

In my previous post, I have described that total 12 tools are available in the market. Out of those 3 tools are most popular. Those are Automation anywhere, BluePrism and Uipath. Many programmers asked what are the differences between these tools. I have given differences of all these three RPA tools.

BluePrismBlue Prism has taken a simple concept, replicating user activity on the desktop, and made it enterprise strength. The technology is scalable, secure, resilient, and flexible and is supported by a comprehensive methodology, operational framework and provided as packaged software.The technology is developed and deployed within a “corridor of IT governance” and has sophisticated error handling and process modelling capabilities to ensu…
