DataStax Enterprise
Chose DataStax Enterprise
We chose datastax because we need a system always available and capable of ingesting a large amount of data per second, even if eventually consistent and with multi data center sync native support.

We considered Cloudera as an alternative using Kafka as the ingestion layer but …

DataStax
Real-time transaction processing (both reads and writes) is where DataStax Enterprise shines. It's very fast with linear scalability should more resources be needed. Additional nodes are added very easily. DataStax Enterprise on its own (without Solr or Spark enabled) isn't well suited for long complicated reports. The data model doesn't support joining multiple tables together which is common in BI reporting.

  • Datastax Cassandra provides high availability and good performance for a database. It is built on top of open source Apache Cassandra so you can always somewhat understand the internal functioning and why.
  • Datastax Cassandra is fairly simple to start using, you can install/setup your cluster and be productive in 1 day.
  • Datastax Cassandra provides a lot of good detailed documentation, and when starting, the detailed free videos on the Datastax site and documentation are very helpful.
  • Datastax Enterprise Edition of Cassandra provides more tools, good support, and quick response SLA for enterprise business support.

Cons
Cloudera
  • Not fully Open Source, couple of components of the distributions are privately owned, meaning with public contributions are not welcome
  • Improvements to Cloudera manager can only be recommended. its very hard to get it done once recommended as the full control is with them.
  • Should make components more aligned to Open Source rather than making it closed sourced.
  • Custom Features of open source software tools supported only by Cloudera are tricky. Cant commit changes to tools like Hue.
  • Improvements to Cluster Management tool is required, which are already available to its competitors.

Likelihood to Renew
Cloudera
Likely to renew the use in case the requirements for Cloudera remain valid. The rapid change in customer requirements and solutions that must be validated, integrated or tested changes. As the maturity of the solution increases, the requirements to renew use decrease. From a solution feature perspective by itself would probably grade 10.

DataStax
There is a bit of a learning curve and tasks that are simple in traditional RDBMS systems can be complicated with DataStax Enterprise but once you get the hang of denormalizing data and getting the data model correct DataStax Enterprise is very usable. Usability from the developer's standpoint is very simple - the complication is on the architecture side with the data model.
