What advice do you have for others considering Apache Hadoop?


If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Apache Hadoop, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

We use the on-premises deployment model. We're more inclined towards an operational data source to fill our customer's needs. Hadoop is good for analytics and some reporting requirements. It's a good solution for those needing something for the purposes of management reporting. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

I've used the solution under cloud, hybrid and on-premises deployment models. I'd recommend the solution, but it depends on the company's requirements. If you don't have huge amounts of data, you probably don't need Hadoop. If you need a completely private environment, and you have lots of big data, consider Hadoop. You don't even need to invest in the infrastructure as you can just use a cloud deployment. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. I'd rate it higher if it had a better user interface.

We use the on-premises deployment model. It's a requirement for the company we work with, which is a bank. Often customers demand we work with on-premises deployment models. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. In terms of the ability to build middleware and offer scalability, it would be 10 out of 10 from me. However, if you take into account only the visualization, I'd only rate it at three or four out of ten.

It's good for what is meant to do, a lot of big data, but it's not as good for low latency applications. If you have to perform quick queries on naive or analytics it can be frustrating. It can be useful for what it was intended to be used for. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

I would give this product a rating of eight out of ten. It would not be a ten out of ten because of some problems we are having with the upgrade to the newer version. It would have been better for us if these problems were not holding us back. I think eight is good enough.

Implement for defined use cases. Don't expect it to all just work very easily. I would rate this platform a seven out of 10. On the one hand, it's the only place you can use certain functions, and on the other hand, it's not going to put any of the other ones out of business. It's really more of a complement. There is no fundamental battle between relational databases and Hadoop.
