A lap around Azure HDInsight and Cosmos DB Open Source Analytics + NoSQL
Recently, we released the Spark Connector for our distributed NoSQL service – Azure Cosmos DB (formerly known as Azure DocumentDB). By connecting Apache Spark running on top Azure HDInsight to Azure Cosmos DB, you can accelerate your ability to solve fast-moving data science problems and machine learning. The Spark to Azure Cosmos DB connector efficiently exploits the native Cosmos DB managed indexes and enables updateable columns when performing analytics, push-down predicate filtering against fast-changing globally-distributed data, ranging from IoT, data science, and analytics scenarios. Come learn how you can perform blazing fast planet-scale data processing with Azure Cosmos DB and HDInsight.
