Microsoft

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.

If you run a SQL query, Starburst Presto can help you track efficiently the status of SQL query. It can also track how many resources have been allocated for execution and what is the optimal way to run the query without hindrance. It also provides good information on worker nodes and how parallel threads are running together.

Cons

Microsoft

  • 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.

      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.

      Starburst Data

      Most of our systems were compatible with Starburst Presto. The dashboard which they provide was fairly intuitive and easy to use. The learning curve wasn't that much. Also, the parallel processing part was an additional feature that we didn't find in many competitive products. The pricing was a little higher but it was worth the trade-off.
