During Microsoft Research’s recent Silicon Valley TechFair, the “Naiad on Azure: Rich, Interactive Cloud Analytics” project showcased an aspect of the big-data movement that focuses on enabling data analysts to develop an application and then deploy it seamlessly to the cloud.
“We have made it easy for people to get their data into Azure, feed it into Naiad, start processing, and serve it using Azure websites,” says Derek Murray, a researcher at Microsoft Research Silicon Valley.
The team has recently released the DryadLINQ and Naiad frameworks, as open-source software for developers who want to work with Big Data using Microsoft Azure, making it easy for developers to try out and adopt the frameworks for commercial use.
