What is most valuable?

One of the most valuable features is that you can configure your data nodes in the big data. Whatever you want. Normally, for example, if you are testing websites and Hash clouds and other sites, in most of them you must manage more than three or four requirements. For example, you must install each… more »

What needs improvement?

I work a lot with banking, IT and communications customers. Hortonworks must improve or must upgrade their services for these sectors. Each customer has different requirements. From the IT side, someone who has some experience of the cluster, computer clustering, computer networking, different fire… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is comprehensible but it also depends on the customers and the customer's stability requirements. I know that Hortonworks is stable, but sometimes when you are talking with the customers, they wonder if Hortonworks is free, how can it be enterprise. But I explain that Hortonworks is… more »

What other advice do I have?

The solution is an open-source project. If you don't want to use their professional support services, you don't pay anything for Hortonworks and its solutions. When you want to call there or use its user interface, it's paid. This is why prefer Hortonworks solutions in my projects. I would rate this… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable part of this product is what Cloudera Data Science Workbench can do as a whole for modeling and analysis.

What needs improvement?

We are happy with the platform but we are also looking at what else is out there. We are comparing what other teams are using in our company to the solution we have adopted. The main difference, and what seems better with other tools, is the deployment. That part is not entirely clear to us. We can… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think it is priced well and it is affordable. Hadoop, which we use with the solution, is open-source. That part is free. We pay only for whatever wrappers Cloudera provides on top of the open-source product, Hadoop. I do not know about the actual pricing in total. The whole point of Hadoop is that… more »

What other advice do I have?

It is important to note that the IT team has to support the product. We are not the IT team so if we have to scale it, someone has to be able to do that administrative job of adding another server and managing the distribution of the data across all the servers. To work with this, you need to have… more »

How has it helped my organization?

This solution is a cheaper way for us to offload the otherwise expensive data. We can move data from outdated database versions, such as Oracle 10. It is now out of support, but still hosts some of our historical data. This solution has helped us move our data to the current version. Previously, we had our data on more expensive platforms. Now, using this solution, it is much cheaper to have all… more »

What needs improvement?

We have had problems with the backup and with services that require a disaster site. We are still struggling with some of these issues. We are having trouble with Active Directory and Hive integration. I would like to see more support for containers such as Docker and OpenShift.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good product, but we still have some issues with backup, and the performance monitors that we install on every system. There may be solutions, but we're struggling to integrate them. This is a product that I recommend. It's a solution that comes at a lower price, and it works well if you don't have expectations that it will behave like a much more expensive system. I would rate this… more »
