Quotes From Members

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."

"The Hortonworks solution is so stable. It is working as a production system, without any error, without any downtime. If I have downtime, it is mostly caused by the hardware of the computers.""Now, using this solution, it is much cheaper to have all of the data available for searching, not in real-time, but whenever there is a pending request.""The scalability is the key reason why we are on this platform.""Hortonworks should not be expensive at all to those looking into using it."

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."

"I work a lot with banking, IT and communications customers. Hortonworks must improve or must upgrade their services for these sectors.""I would like to see more support for containers such as Docker and OpenShift.""The version control of the software is also an issue."
