Alluxio

It is well suited to data management as it acts as a single stop to access multiple data sources. it also connects to different versions of the same storage data. It is less appropriate for the users, using the Windows system as the prerequisite of Alluxio is either having macOS or Linux.

If you want to save costs and just pay for what you use, I highly recommend it. It will help you also to work with data for your reports and analytics. on the other hand I think it could be the subscription you have but high volume of data make it slow but not so much. anyway I think it's really good because it's from Microsoft which always is friendly to use it as all the suit they have.

Cons

Alluxio

  • In the competitive market, they need to provide some more unique features.
  • The prerequisite of this is java8 and it can't be used on windows. Which can be an area of improvement.

  • The only problem I have come across is when loading large volumes of data I sometimes get an error message, I assume this means something is corrupt from within. I would love a way for this to be resolved without having to start over.

      Azure HDInsight is usable on the top of Azure Data Lake and gives us the benefit of analyzing large scale data workload in Hadoop. Usability and support from Microsoft are outstanding.

      Alternatives Considered

      Alluxio

      It provides a single point of access to various data sources. Which makes it more unique from the competitors. Also in terms of deployment, one can easily deploy applications. It is also compatible with Hadoop. Also, existing data analytics apps like spark may run on top of this without making any code change.

      At this time I have not used any other similar products... I am open to it but Azure HDInsight and its components really work well for our organization.
