Ability to extend Azure Data Lake components? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Team

    I have a client evaluating Azure and AWS for Big Data eg Azure Data Lake A&S versus AWS EMR/S3 -- in looking at their requirements, there are additional components that need to be present on the Hadoop nodes.  Within AWS, I can do basic bootstrapping to start up additional services not within the standard AMI/EMR environment -- but not sure if I have the capability to do this within Azure.  Given that Azure DL A&S is a managed service -- I am concerned that I do not have the ability to extend/customize the underlying environment eg adding software on each node and specialized service start-up.  Any ideas?

  • I'd be happy to help.  If you're really looking for a cluster service like EMR, then HDInsight is probably a better bet for customisation than ADL.

    Does HDInsight work for your customer?

    Thank you,
