A data platform true to the spirit of open source

What do you like best?

HDP is the closest open source platform you can get in hadoop eco system with more choice of tools than everything else. The convenience of Ambari UI and API for building, deploying and managing the cluster makes it relatively easy to get started. With Yarn and Spark you can mix different nodes for storage and compute and master nodes to manage loads.

What do you dislike?

Version upgrades are more challenging than anticipated. Each upgrade has it's own quirks and compatibility issues that need to be resolved manually.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Building and deploying large scale Hadoop/Hive/Yarn/Spark clusters with hundreds of nodes in distributed environments on AWS.

Easy to understand Tutorials

What do you like best?

The tutorials that they provide on their website are the best.

So, simplified and easy to understand. Plus they also provide us with the working model of their implementation which we can implement ourself side by side giving us a feel of what is happening and how it is happening.

They have also attached screenshots of each and every screen which helps us a lot. The comment section that they have included also helps us solve the error because sometimes same error had been faced by some other person and experts helps us solve that error.

What do you dislike?

I just dislike the virtual image they provide us. My laptop configurations is decent enough to support cloudera's Vm and run processes on it but the VM that they have provided are too slow to process. Plus, in some tutorials, especially the projects that they have mentioned, I tried to implement that and I was getting errors which I was unable to resolve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

First learn all the concepts of BIG DATA and then move onto this platform to implement the things. Projects mentioned are really awesome and try to do that on your own.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am just into it with the aim to learn about BIG DATA and implement the things that I have learnt throughout the year. I had been implementing all the stuff by myself like hadoop, hive, pig etc but the speciality about these VM's is that they have everything preloaded and all you need to do is just import the VM and start playing.

What Big Data Processing and Distribution solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Best commercial hadoop distribution product

What do you like best?

Documentation with clear examples. Easy for any beginner to start with hadoop.

Their blogs are really good to find solutions for the common problems that we come across.

Due to it's good performance, we eventually moved from cloudera to hortonworks platform.

It supports Windows platform as well.

What do you dislike?

VM setup - It's not as good as what Cloudera provides.

Monitoring isn't that great. Ambari Management interface on HDP is just a basic one and does not have many rich features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hortonworks provides a framework comprising of open source projects which is good for any open source lovers. Easy to start with it's great tutorials.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use our hortonworks hadoop cluster to process web & email logs. It has enabled us to process huge volume of data much quicker.

Wonderful Partner for Hadoop

What do you like best?

1. Knowledge base of the original committers

2. Very good support team

3. Provides more features for the money

4. SmartSense of HDP is a great way of understanding the problems before they happen

5. Integrates very well with Apache Phoenix (SQL on Hadoop)

What do you dislike?

1. Licensing cost is high when compared to other distribution partners

Recommendations to others considering the product

Even if its a little pricier, i would recommend you to use HDP because in longer run you want to use more projects that are built on Hadoop rather than just HBase or Search, and at that time, you would want a partner who can help

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. Advanced Analytics picture of customer behaviors and shopping patterns

2. Provide personalized website for each customer based on their needs

3. Use it to handle the entire catalog of major retailers

HDP is Laser Focused on Hadoop Platform

What do you like best?

100% Open Source

Employs Commiters of Top Apache Projects(HDFS,YARN,HBase,Hive,Pig, etc)

Fully Focused on Hadoop Platform

Enterprise support cost is lower as compared to CDH(per node)

Integration of HBase with Phoenix

What do you dislike?

Monitoring in Ambari can be Improved.

Upgrades to HDP platform needs full shutdown of Hadoop Cluster.

Look and Feel of Ambari UI is Outdated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

HDP is a FULL stack Hadoop Platform. It is getting better by time. However, Ambari(Cluster Management Tool) needs some major features to come close to competition.

If i have to select a Hadoop Vendor. I would definitely evaluate HDP as one of potential option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Hadoop(HDP) to store and process our Data. Hadoop has enabled us to run our pipelines faster and perform data refresh more frequently. Our data processes have become more stable due to Fault-Tolerance of Hadoop.

Solid Managed Hadoop Stack

What do you like best?

Hortonworks comes barebones with everything you need for a managed modern Hadoop stack, including services such as HDFS, YARN, MapReduce, Pig, Hive, Oozie, HBase, Storm, and Spark. The service and support itself is solid.

What do you dislike?

Hortonworks is a bit of an underdog, with Cloudera being the market leader.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using Hortonworks within our Data Science & Engineering team for real-time analytics, near-real-time analytics, and batch processing.
