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

Pros
"The features I find most valuable is that the solution is that it is easy to install and to work with. It starts with the installation and from there on the management is very simple and centralized.""The search function is the most valuable aspect of the solution.""Provides a viable open-source solution for enterprise implementations and reliable, intelligent data analysis.""We experienced many issues when we started working with Hadoop 3.0 in the Cloudera 6.0 version, so there are a lot of things that need to improve. I believe they are working on that.""In terms of scalability, if you have enough hardware you can scale out. Scalability doesn't have any issues.""The most valuable feature is Impala, the querying engine, which is very fast.""We also really like the Cloudera community. You can have any question and will have your answer within a few hours.""The most valuable feature is Kubernetes."

Cons
"I would like to see an improvement in how the solution helps me to handle the whole cluster.""The user infrastructure and user interface needs to be improved, as well as the performance. The GUI needs to be better.""The solution does not support multiple languages very well and this means users need to create work-arounds to implement some solutions.""We experienced many issues when we started working with Hadoop 3.0 in the Cloudera 6.0 version, so there is a lot of things that need to improve.""The one thing that we struggled with predominately was support. Because it was relatively new, support was always a big issue and I think it's still a bit of an ongoing concern with the team currently managing it.""There is a maximum of a one-gigabyte block size, which is an area of storage that can be improved upon.""Without the big data environment, we cannot store all of this data live. We have billions of records and terabytes of storage to be used. It's not an option actually for us to have a big data environment.""The price of this solution could be lowered."

More Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop Cons »

"The failover and failback could be a bit easier. When I looked at it last time, it had to be manually done. It also took over an hour for us to rebalance all the nodes.""The performance could be quicker and better, especially in the querying process."

Overview
Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop is the world's most complete, tested, and popular distribution of Apache Hadoop and related projects. CDH is 100% Apache-licensed open source and is the only Hadoop solution to offer unified batch processing, interactive SQL, and interactive search, and role-based access controls. More enterprises have downloaded CDH than all other such distributions combined.

Couchbase Server is a NoSQL database, which has become the de facto standard for building Systems of Engagement. It is designed with a distributed architecture for performance, scalability, and availability. It enables developers to build applications easier and faster by leveraging the power of SQL with the flexibility of JSON.

The new string, date, array, and JSON object functions that have been added to N1QL simplify data transformations and provide richer query expressions.

Faster queries in N1QL are the result of several query engine performance enhancements across many types of operations, including joins and index scans.

The most innovative enterprises are introducing NoSQL to replace or augment legacy databases, including Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server. With Couchbase Server, they get the best of both worlds – the powerful querying and enterprise features of a relational database, combined with the scalability, performance, and flexibility of a NoSQL database.

To make the transition easier, Couchbase Server provides many of the same features found in relational databases.
