Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the database.""The most valuable features are powerful tools for ingestion, as data is in multiple systems.""Hadoop is designed to be scalable, so I don't think that it has limitations in regards to scalability.""The solution is easy to expand. We haven't seen any issues with it in that sense. We've added 10 servers, and we've added two nodes. We've been expanding since we started using it since we started out so small. Companies that need to scale shouldn't have a problem doing so.""Hadoop is extensible — it's elastic.""The performance is pretty good.""It's good for storing historical data and handling analytics on a huge amount of data."

"The most valuable feature is the performance.""The solution is pretty automated, which takes out the possibility of human error.""The database is solid.""The solution is simple to use and easy to maintain.""The Oracle database is able to get the data, process it, and return it to the company's CEO's and CFO's within a single day, and thus they are able to find out yesterday's P and L by today. It has drastically reduced the amount and time of processing from seven days to one day.""If the database goes down on one of the servers, the load is automatically shifted to another server. You can troubleshoot the one that is down without affecting uptime."

Cons
"Hadoop's security could be better.""The solution is very expensive.""From the Apache perspective or the open-source community, they need to add more capabilities to make life easier from a configuration and deployment perspective.""It would be good to have more advanced analytics tools.""It would be helpful to have more information on how to best apply this solution to smaller organizations, with less data, and grow the data lake.""The solution could use a better user interface. It needs a more effective GUI in order to create a better user environment.""The solution needs a better tutorial. There are only documents available currently. There's a lot of YouTube videos available. However, in terms of learning, we didn't have great success trying to learn that way. There needs to be better self-paced learning."

More Apache Hadoop Cons »

"If we were able to use Oracle Database to create mobile apps, that would be great. I don't know multiple languages, like Java, etc. I need to learn a separate language, right now in order to do this.""We would like the ability to add more storage without having to upgrade to Oracle Exadata.""The product is quite complex to set up, initially. It would be ideal if it was simpler.""In terms of what can be be improved, I'd say Artificial Intelligence, AI. It would be really helpful if AI was incorporated within the solution.""Virtualization needs improvement. It's not easy to back up the virtual machines in the Oracle VM architecture. I would also like to see native support for Veeam Backup Software.""Oracle could improve its capacity for built-in visualization."

Overview
The Apache Hadoop project develops open-source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing. The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. Rather than rely on hardware to deliver high-availability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle failures at the application layer, so delivering a highly-available service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to failures.

The Oracle Database Appliance saves time and money by simplifying deployment, maintenance, and support of database solutions for organizations of every size. Optimized for the world's most popular database--Oracle Database--it integrates software, compute, storage, and network resources to deliver database services for a wide range of custom and packaged online transaction processing (OLTP), in-memory database, and data warehousing applications. All hardware and software components are engineered and supported by Oracle, offering customers a reliable and secure system with built-in automation and best practices. In addition to accelerating the time to value when deploying database solutions, the Oracle Database Appliance offers flexible Oracle Database licensing options and reduces operational expenses associated with maintenance and support.
