Easy to use and is capable of processing large amounts of data

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for information gathering and processing. I use it myself when I am developing on my laptop. I am currently using an on-premises deployment model. However, in a few weeks, I will be using the EMR version on the cloud.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature of this solution is its capacity for processing large amounts of data."
  • "When you first start using this solution, it is common to run into memory errors when you are dealing with large amounts of data."

What other advice do I have?

The work that we are doing with this solution is quite common and is very easy to do. My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to look at their needs and then look at the community. Normally, there are a lot of people who have already done what you need. So, even without experience, it is quite simple to do a lot of things. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
