Amazon DynamoDB

If you start with Amazon DynamoDB, you are over optimizing for the future. In my opinion, use Amazon DynamoDB only when SQL can not handle the load of your application.

Cloudera Enterprise

A really small, sandbox installation might be better off without Cloudera Enterprise at the start. If you subsequently move to Cloudera Enterprise, the benefits will be very obvious

Pros

  • Recall on primary hashes is very fast, with HTTP latency over the network we were regularly able to call up records in the 20ms range from a database of millions of records
  • Like other NoSQL databases Dynamo lets you easily and quickly add fields to each record without having to define a full schema.
  • Pricing is quite affordable as long as you are efficient with your queries. You really need to be doing hash lookups rather than scans since Amazon charges you per record accessed.

Cons

  • Nothing much in particular, however I feel it would be nice if it provides additional features like pre-defined templates, quick user guides in the console itself directly.

It's a high quality product, from people that fully understand the space, and also support the tech community.

Alternatives Considered

Sql is much more feature rich yet costly and harder to maintain. Requires physical servers while dynamo everything is in the cloud across multiple AZs. Redis is actually great to put on top of dynamo to use as a read cache which is much faster and cheaper, but the storage and retrieval options are not as robust and the reliability is decreased

Cloudera supports Impala and Hortonworks supports LLAP and both of them are good in terms of performance. Hortonworks uses more up to date technology support in terms of supported versions.
