If you wish to use this solution, make sure you compare it with some other solutions first to make sure it's right for your needs. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of nine.

It is important to note that the IT team has to support the product. We are not the IT team so if we have to scale it, someone has to be able to do that administrative job of adding another server and managing the distribution of the data across all the servers. To work with this, you need to have that skill set within the IT department. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate Hortonworks Data Platform as an eight or nine out-of-ten. It is meeting a need.

This is a good product, but we still have some issues with backup, and the performance monitors that we install on every system. There may be solutions, but we're struggling to integrate them. This is a product that I recommend. It's a solution that comes at a lower price, and it works well if you don't have expectations that it will behave like a much more expensive system. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

The solution is an open-source project. If you don't want to use their professional support services, you don't pay anything for Hortonworks and its solutions. When you want to call there or use its user interface, it's paid. This is why prefer Hortonworks solutions in my projects. I would rate this solution 10 out of 10.

Hortonworks actually provides a complete solution and just one user interface that can manage all the packages. It can monitor all the requirements, all the versions and additionally all the quays and all the hardware-dependent services. What I want is a useful user interface which is the reason why I currently prefer to use Hortonworks.

We use this solution to look at and manage big data. It's mostly historical data that we offload from our data warehouse, as well as from other databases in other platforms. We have two different installations. The first one is based on IBM POWER CPUs, and the other one is based on Intel CPUs. Our data center is on-premise. There is some thought on moving to a private could, or a private IBM cloud, but we have not proceeded with that as of yet.

I work a lot with banking, IT and communications customers. Hortonworks must improve or must upgrade their services for these sectors. Each customer has different requirements. From the IT side, someone who has some experience of the cluster, computer clustering, computer networking, different fire defense, for example, it is so important that they have some additional graphics, some additional service reports added to the Hortonworks current user interface, which could provide easy images. Especially if they are using it without any experience first.

We have had problems with the backup and with services that require a disaster site. We are still struggling with some of these issues. We are having trouble with Active Directory and Hive integration. I would like to see more support for containers such as Docker and OpenShift.
