Cons
"The solution is not easy to use because it is a big database and you have to learn the interface. This is the case though in most of these solutions.""The disc space is lacking. You need to free it up as you are working.""Fine-tuning was a bit of a challenge.""Interface is not user friendly.""The solution doesn't have joins between tables so you need other tools for that."

"Currently, we are using many other tools such as Spark and Blade Job to improve the performance.""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.""There are better solutions out there that have more features than this one.""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.""The security of this solution could be improved. There should also be a way to basically have a blockchain enabled storage with the HDFS.""It could be faster and more user-friendly.""There is a maximum of a one-gigabyte block size, which is an area of storage that can be improved upon.""The initial setup of Cloudera is difficult."
