Sqoop is great for sending data between a JDBC compliant database and a
environment. Sqoop is built for those who need a few simple CLI options to import a selection of database tables into
, do large dataset analysis that could not commonly be done with that database system due to resource constraints, then export the results back into that database (or another). Sqoop falls short when there needs to be some extra, customized processing between database extract, and
loading, in which case
's JDBC utilities might be preferred

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.
Read full review Pros Provides generalized JDBC extensions to migrate data between most database systems Generates Java classes upon reading database records for use in other code utilizing Hadoop's client libraries Allows for both import and export features Read full review Data is presented without interfering others (IT or other dept). Data is managed properly and is available for retrievable any time. Legacy use of CD/DVD and Pendrive are not required. Read full review Cons Sqoop2 development seems to have stalled. I have set it up outside of a Cloudera CDH installation, and I actually prefer it's "Sqoop Server" model better than just the CLI client version that is Sqoop1. This works especially well in a microservices environment, where there would be only one place to maintain the JDBC drivers to use for Sqoop. Read full review 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. Read full review Usability
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.

I highly recommend it.
Read full review Alternatives Considered Sqoop comes preinstalled on the major Hadoop vendor distributions as the recommended product to import data from relational databases. The ability to extend it with additional JDBC drivers makes it very flexible for the environment it is installed within. Spark also has a useful JDBC reader, and can manipulate data in more ways than Sqoop, and also upload to many other systems than just Hadoop. Kafka Connect JDBC is more for streaming database updates using tools such as Oracle GoldenGate or Debezium. Streamsets and Apache NiFi both provide a more "flow based programming" approach to graphically laying out connectors between various systems, including JDBC and Hadoop. Read full review
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.
Read full review Return on Investment When combined with Cloudera's HUE, it can enable non-technical users to easily import relational data into Hadoop. Being able to manipulate large datasets in Hadoop, and them load them into a type of "materialized view" in an external database system has yielded great insights into the Hadoop datalake without continuously running large batch jobs. Sqoop isn't very user-friendly for those uncomfortable with a CLI. Read full review Less implementation cost. No hosting services cost. Faster data retrieval. Read full review ScreenShots
