Apache Hadoop Pros

Abhik Ray - PeerSpot reviewer
Co-Founder at Quantic
The most important feature is its ability to handle large volumes. Some of our customers have really large volumes, and it is capable of handling their data in terms of the core volume and daily incremental volume. So, its processing power and speed are most valuable.

What I like about Apache Hadoop is that it's for big data, in particular big data analysis, and it's the easier solution. I like the data processing feature for AI/ML use cases the most because some solutions allow me to collect data from relational databases, while Hadoop provides me with more options for newer technologies.

We selected Apache Hadoop because it is not dependent on third-party vendors.

Hadoop is designed to be scalable, so I don't think that it has limitations in regards to scalability.

I liked that Apache Hadoop was powerful, had a lot of tools, and the fact that it was free and community-developed.

Apache Hadoop Cons

Abhik Ray - PeerSpot reviewer
Co-Founder at Quantic
It requires a great deal of learning curve to understand. The overall Hadoop ecosystem has a large number of sub-products. There is ZooKeeper, and there are a whole lot of other things that are connected. In many cases, their functionalities are overlapping, and for a newcomer or our clients, it is very difficult to decide which of them to buy and which of them they don't really need. They require a consulting organization for it, which is good for organizations such as ours because that's what we do, but it is not easy for the end customers to gain so much knowledge and optimally use it.

What could be improved in Apache Hadoop is its user-friendliness. It's not that user-friendly, but maybe it's because I'm new to it. Sometimes it feels so tough to use, but it could be because of two aspects: one is my incompetency, for example, I don't know about all the features of Apache Hadoop, or maybe it's because of the limitations of the platform. For example, my team is maintaining the business glossary in Apache Atlas, but if you want to change any settings at the GUI level, an advanced level of coding or programming needs to be done in the back end, so it's not user-friendly.

Real-time data processing is weak. This solution is very difficult to run and implement.

From the Apache perspective or the open-source community, they need to add more capabilities to make life easier from a configuration and deployment perspective.

The price could be better. I think we would use it more, but the company didn't want to pay for it. Hortonworks doesn't exist anymore, and Cloudera killed the free version of Hadoop.

I think more of the solution needs to be focused around the panel processing and retrieval of data.
