Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I don't see any performance issues.""The file system is a valuable feature.""Cloudera is a very manageable solution with good support.""With a cluster available, you can manage the security layer using the shared SDX - it provides flexibility.""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.""We're now able to store large volumes of data through Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop. We're able to push large volumes of data to the platform, and that used to be a challenge, especially when storing a terabyte of information. This is the area where Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop improved the organization.""The main advantage is the storage is less expensive.""The product as a whole is good."
