The product integrates with other applications easily, but it has fewer features compared to its competitors
We use the solution for data streaming We use the tool to stream live data. The end users can see the real-time data. We can integrate the tool with other applications easily. More features must be added to the product. As compared to Kafka, the tool must be improved. I have been using the…

User-friendly, good customization and offers exceptional scalability, allowing users to run jobs ranging from 32 cores to over 2,000 cores
The main drawback to using AWS Batch would be the cost. It will be more expensive in some cases than using an HPC. It's more amenable to cases where you have spot requirements. So, for instance, you don't exactly know how much compute resources you'll need and when you'll need them. So it's much better for that flexibility. But if you're going to be running jobs consistently and using the compute cluster consistently for a lot of time, and it's not going to have a lot of downtime, then the HPC system might be a better alternative. So, really, it boils down to cost versus usage trade-offs. It's going to be more expensive for a lot of people. In future releases, I would like to see anything that could help make it easier to set up your initial system. And besides improving the GUI a little bit, the interface to it, making it a little bit more descriptive and having more information at your fingertips, so if you could point to the help of what the different features are, you can get quick access to that. That might help. With most of the AWS services, the difficulty really is getting information and knowledge about the system and seeing examples. So, seeing examples of how it's being used under multiple use cases would be the best way to become familiar with it. And some of that would just come with experience. You have to just use it and play with it. But in terms of the system itself, it's not that difficult to set up or use.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"We can integrate the tool with other applications easily."
"The most valuable features of this solution are ease of use and implementation."
"Apache NiFi is user-friendly. Its most valuable features for handling large volumes of data include its multitude of integrated endpoints and clients and the ability to create cron jobs to run tasks at regular intervals."
"The initial setup is very easy. I would rate my experience with the initial setup a ten out of ten, where one point is difficult, and ten points are easy."
"Visually, this is a good product."
"The most valuable feature has been the range of clients and the range of connectors that we could use."
"The initial setup is very easy."
"It's an automated flow, where you can build a flow from source to destination, then do the transformation in between."
"There is one other feature in confirmation or call confirmation where you can have templates of what you want to do and just modify those to customize it to your needs. And these templates basically make it a lot easier for you to get started."
"AWS Batch's deployment was easy."
"AWS Batch manages the execution of computing workload, including job scheduling, provisioning, and scaling."
"We can easily integrate AWS container images into the product."
 

Cons

"More features must be added to the product."
"The use case templates could be more precise to typical business needs."
"I think the UI interface needs to be more user-friendly."
"The tool should incorporate more tutorials for advanced use cases. It has tutorials for simple use cases."
"The overall stability of this solution could be improved. In a future release, we would like to have access to more features that could be used in a parallel way. This would provide more freedom with processing."
"There should be a better way to integrate a development environment with local tools."
"We run many jobs, and there are already large tables. When we do not control NiFi on time, all reports fail for the day. So it's pretty slow to control, and it has to be improved."
"There is room for improvement in integration with SSO. For example, NiFi does not have any integration with SSO. And if I want to give some kind of rollback access control across the organization. That is not possible."
"AWS Batch needs to improve its documentation."
"The solution should include better and seamless integration with other AWS services, like Amazon S3 data storage and EC2 compute resources."
"The main drawback to using AWS Batch would be the cost. It will be more expensive in some cases than using an HPC. It's more amenable to cases where you have spot requirements."
"When we run a lot of batch jobs, the UI must show the history."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice
