As part of Strata, Microsoft partner, Hortonworks announced the next version of their Hadoop distribution HDP 2.2 will include capabilities to orchestrate data from on-premise to Azure. This will allow customers to back-up their on-premise data or elastically scale out using the power of the cloud.
Finally, Microsoft is offering new machine learning capabilities as part of the Azure Marketplace. Customers can now access ML as web services which enable scenarios like doing anomaly detection, running a recommendation engine, doing fraud detection, and a set of R packages.
