"The most valuable feature is Impala, the querying engine, which is very fast."
"The most valuable feature is Kubernetes."
"The product as a whole is good."
"The file system is a valuable feature."
"We also really like the Cloudera community. You can have any question and will have your answer within a few hours."
"The main advantage is the storage is less expensive."
"CDH has a wide variety of proprietary tools that we use, like Impala. So from that perspective, it's quite useful as opposed to something open-source. We get a lot of value from Cloudera's proprietary tools."
"The solution is reliable and stable, it fits our requirements."
"Hortonworks should not be expensive at all to those looking into using it."
"The scalability is the key reason why we are on this platform."
"The data platform is pretty neat. The workflow is also really good."
"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."
"The initial setup of Cloudera is difficult."
"It could be faster and more user-friendly."
"Currently, we are using many other tools such as Spark and Blade Job to improve the performance."
"The procedure for operations could be simplified."
"There is a maximum of a one-gigabyte block size, which is an area of storage that can be improved upon."
"The security of this solution could be improved. There should also be a way to basically have a blockchain enabled storage with the HDFS."
"The price of this solution could be lowered."
"The version control of the software is also an issue."
"It would also be nice if there were less coding involved."
