Microsoft Azure hosts Hadoop, other open-source apps

Joab Jackson | Dec. 13, 2011
Making good on an announcement made earlier this year, Microsoft has installed a version of Apache Hadoop on its Azure cloud service. The company now offers a limited preview version of the open-source data analysis platform, often used for big data-style analysis.

Database prices have been altered as well. Users can now keep a database as large as 150 GB on Azure--the previous limit was 50 GB. Customers with more than 50 GB will not be charged more than the maximum rate of $499.95.
