Cloudera Data Platform

In the creation of maintenance models Cloudera can excel greatly, because it allows you to create very scalable and applicable processes in different types of technology, either for reporting based purely on data, or to implement its analysis modalities to develop IT projects. In case of requiring detailed review of different phases of IT processes, Cloudera can be useful in security operations that require high expertise in shared data.

  • First, get the database on Oracle. If you are in an Oracle stack, it would be much better to use the Oracle products. If you are driving a Ferrari, you wouldn’t put a Mercedes engine in it. If you are writing a query, you cannot rely on other brands. Since I'm an architect, when I look for a product, I look for performance.
  • The installation is easy because it comes out-of-the-box and you just start using it.
  • Previous to Oracle Exadata, we were using a normal Oracle RAC service. We were just waiting for this product to come out.
  • I'm currently writing a data warehouse on Exadata. Before this solution, we were aiming for this to be completed by 8 a.m., when our ETLs would finish. With the help of Exadata's special features, this was reduced to 3 a.m. This solution allows us to bring more data within the same time period. It provides us with more subject areas that provide more reports to our users. Our ETL times reduced to 65%, then to 50%.

Oracle Exadata

  • Patching can often become quite involved and convoluted. It should be more transparent and straightforward.
  • Storage metrics can be difficult and time consuming to obtain.
  • Basic administrative functions can be hard to repair when discovered.
  • Vendor support can take a while to obtain. Generally several attempts are necessary to reach the right area of vendor expertise.

We have utilized Cloudera support quite frequently and are very satisfied with the capability and responsiveness of that team. Often, the new features delivered with the platform give us an opportunity to mature the way we're doing things, and the support team have been valuable in developing those new patterns.

IBM's offering of the Cloud Pak for Data has been a moving target and difficult to compare to Cloudera Data Platform. We have implemented our solution on Amazon Web Services, which appears to be supported by IBM at this point, but the migration would be very expensive for us to endeavor.

Oracle Exadata

Oracle Exadata Database Machine had the best performance overall hands down. It clearly beat the competition and we were seeing 1000X improvement on SAP HANA. Oracle Exadata Database Machine beat that without us refactoring our code. To achieve that in HANA, we had to refactor the code somewhat. Now this was for our limited POC of 5 use cases. Given the large number of stored procedures we had in Sybase, we need to capture more production metrics but we are seeing incredible performance.

Return on Investment

Cloudera Data Platform

  • Reduced operational costs
  • Speed to market

Oracle Exadata

  • Single support from a single vendor with both machine and database from Oracle, which is costing us less.
  • With Exadata, we need less technical manpower and less technical support. A business transaction with the integrated and centralized database helps us focus on other business needs.
  • We don't need to buy additional licenses and Hardware for the next 3 to 5 years.
