Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Everyone uses Dremio in my company; some use it only for the analytics function.""Dremio gives you the ability to create services which do not require additional resources and sterilization.""We primarily use Dremio to create a data framework and a data queue.""Dremio allows querying the files I have on my block storage or object storage.""The most valuable feature of Dremio is it can sit on top of any other data storage, such as Amazon S3, Azure Data Factory, SGFS, or Hive. The memory competition is good. If you are running any kind of materialized view, you'd be running in memory.""Dremio enables you to manage changes more effectively than any other data warehouse platform. There are two things that come into play. One is data lineage. If you are looking at data in Dremio, you may want to know the source and what happened to it along the way or how it may have been transformed in the data pipeline to get to the point where you're consuming it."

"Because Big Data Appliance allows me to have a single source of truth, it means I have clean data that can be monetized and leveraged to gain more insights with real-time reports from the dashboard.""The best thing about the product is that the end-user can build the reports by themselves without really knowing anything about databases.""This is a comprehensive solution that is easy to deploy."

Cons
"They have an automated tool for building SQL queries, so you don't need to know SQL. That interface works, but it could be more efficient in terms of the SQL generated from those things. It's going through some growing pains. There is so much value in tools like these for people with no SQL experience. Over time, Dermio will make these capabilities more accessible to users who aren't database people.""Dremio doesn't support the Delta connector. Dremio writes the IT support for Delta, but the support isn't great. There is definitely room for improvement.""I cannot use the recursive common table expression (CTE) in Dremio because the support page says it's currently unsupported.""We've faced a challenge with integrating Dremio and Databricks, specifically regarding authentication. It is not shaking hands very easily.""Dremio takes a long time to execute large queries or the executing of correlated queries or nested queries. Additionally, the solution could improve if we could read data from the streaming pipelines or if it allowed us to create the ETL pipeline directly on top of it, similar to Snowflake.""It shows errors sometimes."

More Dremio Cons →

"The product should be simplified for the average user.""From a technical perspective, Big Data Appliance could be improved with more innovation in the AI and machine-learning parts instead of relying on Cloudera.""It seems like the deployment of repositories has become more difficult in later versions of the product rather than easier."
