What is most valuable?

The features I've found to be most valuable are the speed of reading and writing (read/write performance levels are really high), the transactions model (semantics for data manipulation), and just the overall simplicity of using it.

What needs improvement?

There are a few areas for improvement that I can see, such as security improvements, better monitoring capabilities, and stability of each node. It also could use a better GUI.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using it for demo purposes for one to two months.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We had no deployment issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We've had some issues with stability. During our testing, we were able to drop an entire database by writing huge amounts of data. This is unacceptable -- there could be errors and refusals, but never a complete fall.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There were no problems scaling it for our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good. We didn’t have problems with them in our experience.

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

We chose it because of our relationship with Oracle.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very simple and straightforward. We've had no problems here.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it with our in-house team.

What other advice do I have?

The product is quite nice. It's very simple and was well integrated with the Hadoop MapReduce framewok. It lacks some stability and a good monitoring GUI, so be careful.
