If you wish to use this solution, make sure you compare it with some other solutions first to make sure it's right for your needs. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of nine.

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 that skill set within the IT department. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate Hortonworks Data Platform as an eight or nine out-of-ten. It is meeting a need.

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 solution an eight out of ten.

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 solution 10 out of 10.
