"A TechNet blog by Microsoft's SQL Server Team detailed the
company's plans to release a community technology preview (CTP) of
two new Hadoop connectors: one for SQL Server and one for the
Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) solution.
"PDW is Microsoft's high-scale enterprise data warehousing
solution for enabling self-service business intelligence using SQL
Server. The new Hadoop connectors would provide interoperability
between SQL Server, PDW and Hadoop environments."
