Cortana Analytics is a fully managed big data and advanced analytics suite that helps you transform your data into intelligent action. Come to this two-part session to learn how you can do "big data" processing and storage in Cortana Analytics. In the first part, we will provide an overview of the processing and storage services. We will then talk about the patterns and use cases which make up most big data solutions. In the second part, we will go hands-on, showing you how to get started today with writing batch/interactive queries, real-time stream processing, or NoSQL transactions all over the same repository of data. Crunch petabytes of data by scaling out your computation power to any sized cluster. Store any amount of unstructured data in its native format with no limits to file or account size. All of this can be done with no hardware to acquire or maintain and minimal time to setup giving you the value of "big data" within minutes.
As you consider moving your workloads to Azure, you want to ensure you get the same level of protection as you do on premise. This session will demo how to setup backup for VMs created in the cloud, how to restore backed up VMs to cloud, managing the policies and monitoring the progress of backup operations. Key features like job failure notifications and IaaS VM backup and new supported scenarios.
