A cluster is a set of virtual machines. If I had to set this up myself, it would be a lot of time and work. Instead I'll use the Windows Azure Portal to create and configure to create a new Hadoop cluster in just minutes. Click "HDInsight" to see the clusters I already have and their status. No surprise, I have zero clusters. Click "HDInsight" on the left side, then "new," "quick create." I name my clusterForTutorial. The DNS name I assign will determine the address for the cluster in the domain. I specified clusterForTutorial, so the address of my cluster is Four nodes is more than enough for now. The price varies according to the number of nodes I select, so I only select the number I need. If my needs change, I can add more or even subtract some. I enter my super-secret password which must have at least 10 characters, 1 cap, 1 number, 1 special character. Keep in mind that once the storage account is chosen, it cannot be changed. If the HDInsight cluster is removed, the cluster will no longer be available, but the data will be safe in your Windows Azure storage account. When I click "create clusters," Windows Azure begins creating my cluster. It may take awhile. For me it took about 6 minutes. I know it's done when I see the status on the HDInsight screen listed as "running." Behind the scenes, HDInsight is creating and configuring the VMs that together will make up my HDInsight cluster. It's also installing components like Apache Hadoop, Hive, Pig, Sqoop, Oozie, HCatalog, and SQL Server JDBC Driver. In the next video in this series, we'll take a closer look at what was installed. We'll also take a tour of the HDInsight dashboard, review ways to interact with our cluster, and run our first job. Please visit for more information. [Microsoft]
