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

Pros
In terms of scalability, if you have enough hardware you can scale out. Scalability doesn't have any issues.Provides a viable open-source solution for enterprise implementations and reliable, intelligent data analysis.The search function is the most valuable aspect of the solution.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.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.

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 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.We use it for data science activities.

Cons
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.The solution does not support multiple languages very well and this means users need to create work-arounds to implement some solutions.The user infrastructure and user interface needs to be improved, as well as the performance. The GUI needs to be better.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.I would like to see an improvement in how the solution helps me to handle the whole cluster.

I would like to see more support for containers such as Docker and OpenShift.I work a lot with banking, IT and communications customers. Hortonworks must improve or must upgrade their services for these sectors.Security and workload management need improvement.
