Considered Both Products
Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub
Chose Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub
Cloudera supports Impala and Hortonworks supports LLAP and both of them are good in terms of performance. Hortonworks uses more up to date technology support in terms of supported versions.
Chose Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub
It was the first and best Hadoop distribution when we started years ago. But the situation changed now and if given a choice, may end up choosing something else.

A deep bench of Hadoop experts, major contributions to the Hadoop open source community and a solid head start getting market recognition, skills and awareness across the teams.
Hortonworks Data Platform
Chose Hortonworks Data Platform
Cloudera has been often compared to Hortonworks. We considered the both products and decided to try Hortonworks data platform, by several reasons. One of them was pricing and technical support. Generally speaking Cloudera outperforms Hortonworks in terms of functionalities, but …
Chose Hortonworks Data Platform
Cloudera is a more mature platform. It does not require upgrades as often. However, if you need advanced capabilities, you might be lacking with the Cloudera distribution platform. Many of the other tools in the ecosystem are the same or similar. Cost might also be a factor; …
Chose Hortonworks Data Platform
While Apache Hadoop is completely open sourced, Hortonworks Data Platform offers support as well as keeps pace with the open source versions. Also, the HDP open sources its own products, thus giving back to the community. I find using the Hortonworks Data Platform more …

I find HDP easy to use and solves most of the problems for people looking to manage their big data. Evaluating the Hortonworks Data Platform is easy as it is free to download and install in your cluster. Single node cluster available as Sandbox is also easy for POCs.

Cloudera
  • It does a good job of packaging a lot of big data components into bundles and lets you use the ones you are interested in or need. It supports an extensive list of components which lets us solve many problems.
  • It provides the ability to manage installations and maintenance using Apache Ambari. It helps us in using management packs to install/upgrade components easily. It also helps us add, remove components, add, remove hosts, perform upgrades in a convenient manner. It also provides alerts and notifications and monitors the environment.
  • What they excel in is packaging open source components that are relevant and are useful to solve and complement each other as well as contribute to enhancing those components. They do a great job in the community to keep on top of what would be useful to users, fixing bugs and working with other companies and individuals to make the platform better.

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.

Cloudera
  • Since it doesn't come with propriety tools for big data management, additional integration is need (for query handling, search, etc).
  • It was very straightforward to store clinical data without relations, such as data from sensors of a medical device. But it has limitations when needed to combine the data with other clinical data in structured format (e.g. lab results, diagnosis).
  • Overall look and feel of front-end management tools (e.g. monitoring) are not good. It is not bad but it doesn't look professional.

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.

We chose [Hortonworks Data Platform] because it's free and because [it] was an IBM partner, suggested as big data platform after biginsights platform.
You can install in more physical computer without high specs, then you can use it in order to learn how to deploy, configure a complete big data cluster.
We installed also in a cloud infrastructure of 5 virtual machine

Return on Investment
Cloudera
  • Cloudera products are the most widely. It is more business friendly as data is more secure. The sensitive data that you operate on is local to you and your project rather than processing this data on Cloud.
  • Cloudera is definitely faster as wait time is reduced if on Cloud.
  • A lot range of products are covered. So it is definitely good for businesses and had good returns on investments.

  • It is difficult to have a negative impact, because the required investment is not that high.
  • The big open community behind Hortonworks and related Apache Project makes it easy to put 'the wheel to meet the road' quite quickly.
  • We have seen management meetings where the attendants were impressed by the results achieved with the datalake built on HDP.
