mainly its scalability is one of the major attraction. makes working with huge data easier. also due to the way it is built(architecture), there is considerately less latency than it should have been. Also that it supports in memory storage is a huge plus. it is user friendly, easy to pick up and follow the instruction given on the documentation page of pivotal, and you are good to go. So as a new user trying out new tools, i liked this.
What do you dislike?
there are not much things I can think of. but the server crashes suddenly which is something I dont like. also the application doesnt start most of them. its either slow or takes multiple attempt. But over all very steady
Recommendations to others considering the product
try it you will love it. it is easy to use. I started it out as an experiment of seeing and evaluating what best suits my needs and I was happy with the Big Dt Suite of PivotalGemfire. I have not used too many tools and still a leaner but I surely recommend this tool to new users since its easy to understand and use
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I have mainly used it for big data domain, as in big data analysis, big data analytics, and big data solutionns. the big data suite of pivotal is of great use. it is perfect for large scale due to its in memory database and low latency. Its benefits me due to the features like resilient automation and supporting RESTful API
