What is our primary use case?
We use this solution to process data.
When using an SQL Server you have to build indexes and you need to fine-tune the data.
We import the data that is in the SQL Source.
With a single script, we are able to run the jobs within minutes, which is an advantage.
We are using the Power BI model for the business convention. The performance in Power BI will be reduced if you incorporate more calculations. Those calculations are captured in the Hadoop layer and processed.
What needs improvement?
It could be faster and more user-friendly.
For how long have I used the solution?
I have been using this solution for seven months.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
It's a stable product. I don't see any performance issues.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
This solution is scalable. We have 40 users for different projects in our organization.
We will continue to use this solution.
How are customer service and technical support?
Technical support is good.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
I didn't use any other product.
How was the initial setup?
The installing is straightforward.
Our clients provide us with the access to use it directly.
Once you have been given access to the edge nodes we are able to run the scripts in the Hadoop layer.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
We do not pay for licensing because our customers forward it, so there is no need to purchase the license for the project.
What other advice do I have?
I would recommend this solution.
I would rate Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop a nine out of ten.
