Apache Hadoop Review

Good database and highly scalable, with good plug and play analytics tools

What is our primary use case?

We are primarily dumping all the prior payment transaction data into a loop system and then we use some of the plug and play analytics tools to translate it.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the database.

What needs improvement?

We're finding vulnerabilities in running it 24/7. We're experiencing some downtime that affects the data.

It would be good to have more advanced analytics tools.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for five years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. From a payments perspective, we're using the solution on a large scale.

How are customer service and technical support?

We've never contacted technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use a different solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was complex. There was a lot of data that we had to bring over from various sources and it was quite a long process.

What about the implementation team?

We did have some assistance with the implementation.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

We're more inclined towards an operational data source to fill our customer's needs. Hadoop is good for analytics and some reporting requirements. 

It's a good solution for those needing something for the purposes of management reporting.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
