We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I don't see any performance issues."
"The product as a whole is good."
"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 Impala, the querying engine, which is very fast."
"The main advantage is the storage is less expensive."
"The most valuable feature is Kubernetes."
"CDH has a wide variety of proprietary tools that we use, like Impala. So from that perspective, it's quite useful as opposed to something open-source. We get a lot of value from Cloudera's proprietary tools."
"Hortonworks should not be expensive at all to those looking into using it."
"The data platform is pretty neat. The workflow is also really good."
"The scalability is the key reason why we are on this platform."
"There are better solutions out there that have more features than this one."
"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."
"It could be faster and more user-friendly."
"The price of this solution could be lowered."
"It would be useful if Cloudera had more tools like SQL Engines that offer the traditional relational database. We have to do a lot of work preparing the data outside Cloudera before getting it into the platform."
"There is a maximum of a one-gigabyte block size, which is an area of storage that can be improved upon."
"Currently, we are using many other tools such as Spark and Blade Job to improve the performance."
"The version control of the software is also an issue."
"It would also be nice if there were less coding involved."
"The price could be better for the product."
"When comparing with Oracle Sybase and SQL, it's cheaper. It's not expensive."
"It is priced well and it is affordable"
