Data Science Workbench

Organizations which already implemented on-premise Hadoop based Cloudera Data Platform (CDH) for their Big Data warehouse architecture will definitely get more value from seamless integration of Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW) with their existing CDH Platform. However, for organizations with hybrid (cloud and on-premise) data platform without prior implementation of CDH, implementing CDSW can be a challenge technically and financially.

H2O

Most suited if in little time you wanted to build and train a model. Then, H2O makes life very simple. It has support with R, Python and Java, so no programming dependency is required to use it. It's very simple to use.If you want to modify or tweak your ML algorithm then H2O is not suitable. You can't develop a model from scratch.

Pros

Data Science Workbench

  • One single IDE (browser based application) that makes Scala, R, Python integrated under one tool
  • For larger organizations/teams, it lets you be self reliant
  • As it sits on your cluster, it has very easy access of all the data on the HDFS
  • Linking with Github is a very good way to keep the code versions intact

H2O

  • Excellent analytical and prediction tool
  • In the beginning, usage of H20 Flow in Web UI enables quick development and sharing of the analytical model
  • Readily available algorithms, easy to use in your analytical projects
  • Faster than Python scikit learn (in machine learning supervised learning area)
  • It can be accessed (run) from Python, not only JAVA etc.
  • Well documented and suitable for fast training or self studying
  • In the beginning, one can use the clickable Flow interface (WEB UI) and later move to a Python console. There is then no need to click in H20 Flow
  • It can be used as open source

Cloudera Data Science Workbench has excellence online resources support such as documentation and examples. On top of that the enterprise license also comes with SLA on opening a ticket to Cloudera Services and support for complaint handling and troubleshooting by email or through a phone call. On top of that it also offers additional paid training services.

The overall experience I have with H2O is really awesome, even with its cost effectiveness.

Alternatives Considered

Data Science Workbench

Both the tools have similar features and have made it pretty easy to install/deploy/use. Depending on your existing platform (Cloudera vs. Azure) you need to pick the Workbench. Another observation is that Cloudera has better support where you can get feedback on your questions pretty fast (unlike MS). As its a new product, I expect MS to be more efficient in handling customers questions.

H2O

Both are open source (though H2O only up to some level). Both comprise of deep learning, but H2O is not focused directly on deep learning, while Tensor Flow has a "laser" focus on deep learning. H2O is also more focused on scalability. H2O should be looked at not as a competitor but rather a complementary tool. The use case is usually not only about the algorithms, but also about the data model and data logistics and accessibility. H2O is more accessible due to its UI. Also, both can be accessed from Python. The community around TensorFlow seems larger than that of H2O.

Return on Investment

Data Science Workbench

  • Paid off for demonstration purposes.

H2O

  • Positive impact: saving in infrastructure expenses - compared to other bulky tools this costs a fraction
  • Positive impact: ability to get quick fixes from H2O when problems arise - compared to waiting for several months/years for new releases from other vendors
  • Positive impact: Access to H2O core team and able to get features that are needed for our business quickly added to the core H2O product
