Microsoft has announced the general availability of three new Azure Services in the UK – Azure HDInsight, Azure Import/Export and Azure Container Registry.

The Azure HDInsight is a 100% compatible Hadoop service that allows you to easily provision and manage Hadoop clusters for big data processing in Azure, backed by a 99.9% SLA. Learn more about HDInsight.

The Azure Import/Export enables you to move large amounts of on-premises data or hard disk drives into and out of your Azure Storage accounts. With this, you can quickly and effectively import or export massive amounts of data without being restricted by available network bandwidth.

The Azure Container Registry is a private registry for hosting or storing docker-formatted container images. You can easily store Docker-formatted images for all types of container deployments. Learn more about Azure Container Registry.
