Microsoft rolls out third Hadoop preview for Azure and Windows Server

Jeremy Stanley Jeremy Stanley Profile: Jeremy Stanley

Microsoft’s big data products inched closer to a public release today, as the company released refreshed previews of Hadoop products.

They also gained new names: Windows Azure HDInsight Service and HDInsight Server for Windows.

The products will help admins manage unstructured data “of any shape or size,” according to Microsoft’s big data page, where the HDInsight products are available for evaluation.

The feature list includes access privileges managed with Active Directory and the ability to manage HDInsight clusters with System Center 2012.

Late last year, Microsoft said it partnered with Hortonworks to deliver big data frameworks for the cloud and on-premises versions of its software.

Still up in the air: the official version 1 launch date of the HDInsight, as the company is keeping quiet on its release date.
