Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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is probably the only feature we can improve a little bit because the terminal and coding screen on Hadoop is a little outdated, and it looks like the old C++ bio screen.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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price of Apache Hadoop could be less expensive."
  • "If my company can use the cloud version of Apache Hadoop, particularly the cloud storage feature, it would be easier and would cost less because an on-premises deployment has a higher cost during storage, for example, though I don't know exactly how much Apache Hadoop costs."
  • "We don't directly pay for it. Our clients pay for it, and they usually don't complain about the price. So, it is probably acceptable."
  • "The price could be better. Hortonworks no longer exists, and Cloudera killed the free version of Hadoop."

    The Apache Hadoop project develops open-source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing. The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. Rather than rely on hardware to deliver high-availability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle failures at the application layer, so delivering a highly-available service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to failures.
    IBM Netezza appliances are now part of IBM PureSystems - expert integrated systems with built in expertise, integration by design and a simplified user experience. Part of the PureData family, the Netezza appliance is now known as the PureData System for Analytics. It has the same key design tenets of simplicity, speed, scalability and analytics power that was fundamental to Netezza appliances.
