We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is Impala, the querying engine, which is very fast."
"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 main advantage is the storage is less expensive."
"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."
"I don't see any performance issues."
"The most valuable feature is Kubernetes."
"The solution is very powerful."
"The most valuable features are aggregating the data and integration with Graphana for monitoring."
"Currently, we are using many other tools such as Spark and Blade Job to improve the performance."
"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."
"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."
"There is a maximum of a one-gigabyte block size, which is an area of storage that can be improved upon."
"There are better solutions out there that have more features than this one."
"The price of this solution could be lowered."
"The solution doesn't have much of a user interface."
"The error logging capability can be improved because the logs are not very informative."
"The price could be better for the product."
"When comparing with Oracle Sybase and SQL, it's cheaper. It's not expensive."
