How to setup cloudera in microsoft azure windows 2012 R2 server?

New Contributor

I tried to import cloudera in vmware and virtualbox but it showing virtulization is not enabled.

i cannot enable virtulization in bios because i'am accessing azure vm through Remote access.


Is there any alternate menthod to install cloudera in windows 2012 R2 server in azure ?



Hello prashanthyadav,

I'm not sure which Cloudera software would you like to install on top of Windows Server, but in case of Cloud, it's best to run Linux VMs directly. As a Cloud VM is already running in a virtualized container, another layer of virtualization on top of that is usually not supported.
