Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop Review

It automates the installation and configuration of Hadoop, but it should not provide generic logs for failed installations.

Valuable Features

It automates the installation and configuration of Hadoop and different Big Data services.

Room for Improvement

We're currently trying to perform a failed installation and it's little bit difficult. It should restart the installation where it left off.

Use of Solution

I've used it for two years.

Deployment Issues

  • In some cases, logs are clear about failed services.
  • While deploying in some failed steps it should not provide generic logs.

Customer Service and Technical Support

7/10 - they have forums where they will answer your query within a day.

Previous Solutions

We previously used Hortonworks and changed because Cloudera is simpler and more interactive.

Initial Setup

It was very straightforward.

Implementation Team

We did it in-house. They have good technical support to help with implementation.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

We use the free version, and they provide everything we need.

Other Advice

Implement the free version as it provides enough services. If you want a backup service, or any extra service, then you can implement the enterprise version.
