This is not a cheap solution but it does include the standard support that IBM offers through their portal, and the support is good. IBM has multiple licensing models, and there is a floating license model, where you buy a fixed number of licenses and you pay for them no matter what. Then there's a flexible, token-based license, where you have, let's say,100 tokens, and based on your usage, these tokens will be distributed amongst users and you can scale up as necessary.

We see the solution as cost-effective. You get what you pay for.

It's an expensive investment to make, so the decision should be driven on individual requirements. Licensing: The solution cost is high and should be brought down to increase competition.

We are using the on-premises deployment model. I would advise others considering using the solution to have expertise in the solution from the beginning. Have someone who understands the tool and can help you utilize its features and you'll get an ROI right from the start. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

Hi community,  I'm aware that we can use Apache Spark with/without Hadoop.  But I am sure that the majority of people are using Apache Spark with Hadoop, and I read one article that states how using Apache Spark without Hadoop is not good for deployment, and can be usable for the development environment.  Is that true?  I'd greatly appreciate if anyone can elaborate on this. Thanks.

Can you elaborate on the information you've been told about how using Apache Spark without Hadoop isn't good for deployment? This insight would help many of our users.

I mean we can configure Spark without Hadoop as well like using WinUtils.exe . Is that recommended for Deployment ? Or would like to understand difference between Spark Hadoop Environment and Spark Without Hadoop?
