Azure HDInsight

For my purposes it is well suited, being marketing and advertising.

Hortonworks Data Platform

I find HDP easy to use and solves most of the problems for people looking to manage their big data. Evaluating the Hortonworks Data Platform is easy as it is free to download and install in your cluster. Single node cluster available as Sandbox is also easy for POCs.

Pros

Azure HDInsight

  • Shows live changes in analytics. Shows you how social media is working for us. Since we promote weekly events this is something that we really need to pay attention to.
  • Azure in itself is very user-friendly, HDInsight is a great addition. For our purposes, we definitely also utilized the power query to translate data to Excel.

Hortonworks Data Platform

  • It does a good job of packaging a lot of big data components into bundles and lets you use the ones you are interested in or need. It supports an extensive list of components which lets us solve many problems.
  • It provides the ability to manage installations and maintenance using Apache Ambari. It helps us in using management packs to install/upgrade components easily. It also helps us add, remove components, add, remove hosts, perform upgrades in a convenient manner. It also provides alerts and notifications and monitors the environment.
  • What they excel in is packaging open source components that are relevant and are useful to solve and complement each other as well as contribute to enhancing those components. They do a great job in the community to keep on top of what would be useful to users, fixing bugs and working with other companies and individuals to make the platform better.

Cons

Azure HDInsight

  • 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.

Hortonworks Data Platform

  • Since it doesn't come with propriety tools for big data management, additional integration is need (for query handling, search, etc).
  • It was very straightforward to store clinical data without relations, such as data from sensors of a medical device. But it has limitations when needed to combine the data with other clinical data in structured format (e.g. lab results, diagnosis).
  • Overall look and feel of front-end management tools (e.g. monitoring) are not good. It is not bad but it doesn't look professional.

Alternatives Considered

Azure HDInsight

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.

Hortonworks Data Platform

There are many alternatives, but in order to provide a short list:
- Cloudera CDP is the obvious contendant or alternative, being a leader in big data platforms
- MapR
Cloud options:
- AWS
- Azure
- Google
Also, it is worth noting that Hortonworks has been the replacement selected by IBM for its former BigInsights big data infrastructure offering.

Return on Investment

Azure HDInsight

  • The positive impact is high for our overall business objective; which is to advertise our events, sales, and new merchandise. ROI cannot be compared.
Kristin Page profile photo

Hortonworks Data Platform

  • Positive ROI for streaming use cases.
  • Negative impact on staffing, it will require 1-2 FTEs more than Cloudera or a BI operations team.
  • Positive ROI for Ambari and the ELK stack. You will get great capabilities for IT Operations.
