We use this solution to look at and manage big data. It's mostly historical data that we offload from our data warehouse, as well as from other databases in other platforms. We have two different installations. The first one is based on IBM POWER CPUs, and the other one is based on Intel CPUs. Our data center is on-premise. There is some thought on moving to a private could, or a private IBM cloud, but we have not proceeded with that as of yet.
Hortonworks actually provides a complete solution and just one user interface that can manage all the packages. It can monitor all the requirements, all the versions and additionally all the quays and all the hardware-dependent services. What I want is a useful user interface which is the reason why I currently prefer to use Hortonworks.
We use it for data science activities.
