Well suited: A tiny-mid sized company with no immediate plans of growing the volume of their data processing, that can afford long response times from support. Also it helps if you are not prone to put your hands on Linux and Spark configuration. In fact, it can make things go really faster if you also work with the bundle-in Jupyter. And, if you need to perform some diagnostics and / or administrative tasks, that's full of tools to find an understand the Root Cause. Ideal for non experts. Less appropriate: Big Data company, intense on demand cluster creation, mission critical, costs reduction, latest versions of libraries required, sophisticate customizations required.

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.

Inexpert, isolated teams... not good for support an excessively complex platform. Lots of weeks or months for a complex problem troubleshoot. Many time lost stuck on MindTree, before the case was finally escalated with Microsoft!

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.
