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.

It's easy to add and remove things in MongoDB. You can alter the tables. MongoDB is faster at reading, slower at writings.We haven't had any issues with stability.Scalability seems good. I've never been even close to finding the limits. I've run a couple of notes of redundancy but I've never had any problems with scalability.Easier to maintain the data with its document-based storage.The installation is very stable.

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.

The transaction could use improvement. From MySQL, for example, you cannot create a transaction if you are reading and writing a document at the same time.We find it difficult to incorporate MongoDB in some projects.More stable indexes would be helpful in a future release. That's been an issue for some time. I don't know if it's been fixed now but we transitioned to it because we needed a search index to be able to search for things and if that goes or starts disappearing, we have to move away from that solution. I don't know if they fixed it, last time I had this issue was three years ago so they might have solved it.The improvements could be made to intelligence to detect disk storage and prevent MongoDB from crashing.
