Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Cloudera is a very manageable solution with good support.""The most valuable feature is that I can use CDH for almost all use cases across all industries, including the financial sector, public sector, private retailers, and so on.""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 product as a whole is good.""The file system is a valuable feature.""The solution is reliable and stable, it fits our requirements.""I don't see any performance issues.""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."

More Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop Pros →

"As a graph database, I am surprised at their performance and response time."

More Neo4j Pros →

"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.""This is a very expensive solution.""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 initial setup of Cloudera is difficult.""Cloudera's support is extremely bad and cannot be relied on.""There are better solutions out there that have more features than this one.""The procedure for operations could be simplified.""It could be faster and more user-friendly."
