Microsoft SQL Server 2012with Hadoop
Data management needs have evolved from traditional relational storage to bothrelational and non-relational storage and a modern information management platformneeds to support all types of data. To deliver insight on any data, you need a platformthat provides a complete set of capabilities for data management across relational, non-relational, and streaming data while being able to seamlessly move data from one type toanother and being able to monitor and manage all your data regardless of the type of dataor data structure it is. Apache Hadoop is the widely accepted Big Data tool, similarly,when it comes to RDBMS, SQL Server 2012 is perhaps the most powerful, in-memoryand dynamic data storage and management system. This book enables the reader to bridge the gap between Hadoop and SQL Server, in other words, between the non-relational and relational data management worlds. The book specifically focusses on thedata integration and visualization solutions that are available with the rich BusinessIntelligence suite of SQL Server and their seamless communication with ApacheHadoop and Hive.
