MSFT_AzureMarketplace_NewsletterGraphicFeeling Super Human? The Azure team has created hands-on-labs that let you try popular open source technologies in the Azure Marketplace, including Hortonworks, Chef and Docker. With each lab, you’ll gain experience in big data, infrastructure automation and app containerization, to help you take your work and business to ‘super human’ levels. Complete the lab and choose between a Crazyflie 2.0 mini drone or an Azure Pass.

 

Here’s what to expect with each lab:

Hortonworks: Modernize an architecture

Realize the full potential and power of Big Data with Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), the completely open source Apache Hadoop data platform architected for the enterprise.

Hortonworks Sandbox is the easiest way to get started with HDP, and in this lab you will create and transfer data between an Azure SQL Database and Hortonworks Sandbox. You will then load the data into a Hive table in Hadoop.

Chef: Automate an infrastructure

Chef turns infrastructure into code. With Chef, you can automate how you build, deploy, and manage your infrastructure. Your infrastructure becomes as versionable, testable, and repeatable as application code.

This Chef lab is comprised of scenarios that will cover the setup of a Chef 12 Server in Azure, installing cookbooks and bootstrapping your choice of a either a Windows or Linux node.

Docker: Containerize an application

Docker allows you to package an application with all of its dependencies into a standardized unit for software development.

In this lab you will create a docker enabled virtual machine from Azure Marketplace. You will then go through basic docker commands. After that you will learn how to dockerize a sample application. You will also configure a multi-container application using docker compose.
