In this episode of Data Exposed, Scott welcomes Asad Khan, Principle PM on the HDInsight team.?Today?Asad introduce us to Storm , a new service on HDInsight for real time analytics. This is an interesting and exciting episode as Asad walks us through how Microsoft utilizes an open-source technology to produce a cloud-based data streaming service for HDInsight. Asad walks us through the end-to-end architecture and implementation of Storm on HDInsight and what the service has to offer in terms of the power and flexibility of the service. Because this is an open-source technology, Asad spends some significant time on Microsoft’s promise to the customer in terms of service usability and performance.
