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.
This session introduces the concept of user defined routes and IP Forwarding and illustrates how this can used to build sophisticated scenarios involving network virtual appliances. There will also be a code walkthrough of the template used to set up the scenario end to end in Azure Resource Manager.
On April 25, 2015, Nepal experienced a 7.8 magnitude earthquake—the largest in 80 years. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) partnered with Microsoft to scale their efforts, drive collaboration, and ensure aid and relief efforts are effective. Front-line responders in Nepal are using the Microsoft cloud to store and process data, helping to obtain needed insights and maximize impact. And a joint poverty alleviation initiative is using the cloud to collaborate with other partner organizations, providing support to over 13,000 micro-enterprises and helping them to get businesses back on their feet.
