We performed a comparison between Apache Hadoop and IBM Netezza Performance Server based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Data Warehouse solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"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."
"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."
"The scalability of Apache Hadoop is very good."
"Hadoop is designed to be scalable, so I don't think that it has limitations in regards to scalability."
"We selected Apache Hadoop because it is not dependent on third-party vendors."
"I liked that Apache Hadoop was powerful, had a lot of tools, and the fact that it was free and community-developed."
"Hadoop is extensible — it's elastic."
"One valuable feature is that we can download data."
"The most valuable features of the IBM Netezza Performance Server are the NPS server because of the reduced maintenance and overall good performance."
"Real-time data processing is weak. This solution is very difficult to run and implement."
"I mentioned it definitely, and this is probably the only feature we can improve a little bit because the terminal and coding screen on Hadoop is a little outdated, and it looks like the old C++ bio screen. If the UI and UX can be improved slightly, I believe it will go a long way toward increasing adoption and effectiveness."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Hadoop's security could be better."
"I think more of the solution needs to be focused around the panel processing and retrieval of data."
"The integration with Apache Hadoop with lots of different techniques within your business can be a challenge."
"IBM Netezza Performance Server could improve its interface, support for big data, and APA-based connectivity should be available."
Apache Hadoop is ranked 6th in Data Warehouse with 9 reviews while IBM Netezza Performance Server is ranked 8th in Data Warehouse with 2 reviews. Apache Hadoop is rated 8.0, while IBM Netezza Performance Server is rated 8.6. The top reviewer of Apache Hadoop writes "Has good processing power and speed and is capable of handling large volumes of data and doing online analysis". On the other hand, the top reviewer of IBM Netezza Performance Server writes "We are now able to analyze products, stores, suppliers and sales as quickly as we need". Apache Hadoop is most compared with Microsoft Azure Synapse Analytics, Snowflake, Azure Data Factory, Oracle Exadata and AWS Lake Formation, whereas IBM Netezza Performance Server is most compared with Oracle Exadata, Snowflake, Microsoft Azure Synapse Analytics, SQL Server and Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop.
