We changed our name from IT Central Station: Here's why

Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop Room for Improvement

Senior Software Engineer at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees

There is a maximum of a one-gigabyte block size, which is an area of storage that can be improved upon.

When we are upgrading CDH, there are many things that need to be upgraded and it would be helpful if it were bundled. As it is now, we have to upgrade many different things separately.

We're processing a huge amount of data on our system. Without the big data environment, we cannot store all of this data live. We have billions of records and terabytes of storage to be used. It's not an option actually for us to have a big data environment. Cloudera is trying to adopt new technologies.

I think the idea of open source tools now is dominating. So Cloudera has to decide how to deal with open-source tools. I subscribe to Cloudera to get an enterprise version but I have found that I can get some of its features from other vendors that would be at a lower cost than Cloudera. They should lower the price.

The performance can be improved. We have experienced some performance issues. It is not as sophisticated as Oracle Sybase.

Currently, we are using many other tools such as Spark and Blade Job to improve the performance.

The setup could be simplified, it's complex.

The security needs to be improved.

The security of this solution could be improved. There should also be a way to basically have a blockchain enabled storage with the HDFS.

BI Manager at a insurance company with 10,001+ employees

Integration is one of the main things we struggle with because we're working with several other environments. For example, we've got an MPP environment outside the Hadoop environment. Many cloud-based platforms like Azure are fully integrated with technology that gives you MPP machine learning and data lakes all in one environment. We've got on-premises IBM solutions and Cloudera, so it isn't easy to integrate. It would be useful if Cloudera had more tools like SQL Engines that offer the traditional relational database. We have to do a lot of work preparing the data outside Cloudera before getting it into the platform. And ideally, we should get as much raw data as possible into the platform before we can do the engineering, so we have machine learning and model training.

When you compare Cloudera with EMR, EMR has a lot of administrative features, so you don't need to manage the solution. Cloudera is not as easy, as it requires more DevOps resources than other solutions.
