HDInsight Tool in Azure Toolkit for Eclipse Goes GA
#Microsoft has added to its growing list of Eclipse-based product offerings with the general availability release of the #HDInsight Tool for #Eclipse. This cloud implementation on #Azure of the #Apache #Hadoop technology stack is part of the Azure Toolkit for Eclipse, which Microsoft open sourced under the MIT License. It includes implementations of Apache #Spark, #HBase, #Storm, #Pig, #Hive, #Sqoop, #Oozie, #Ambari and other Hadoop tech. It also integrates with Power BI, Excel, SQL Server Analysis Services and SQL Server Reporting Services. The company released a version of the HDInsight Tool for the IntelliJ integrated development environment (IDE) last month. Since that announcement “… we are maintaining our strong momentum to serve the open source community and expanding our support for Eclipse,” wrote Jenny Jiang, principal program manager in Microsoft’s Big Data Team, in a blog post.
