Cloudera Enterprise offers the right mix of components to build a robust data platform which supports both reporting and analytics which can deal with all sorts of data.

HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric (MapR)

MapR is more well-suited for people who know what they are doing. I consider MapR the Hadoop distribution professionals use.

Pros

Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub

  • One of the oldest distributors of enterprise standard Hadoop.
  • Distribution is based on open source Hadoop even though customizations are done on top of that.
  • Faster updates and bug fixes to the products as they have Apache committers.
  • Central configuration and control of your Hadoop platform (but still needs improvements).

HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric (MapR)

  • MapR had very fast I/O throughput. The write speed was several times faster than what we could achieve with the other Hadoop vendors (Cloudera and Hortonworks). This is because MapR does not use HDFS, which is essentially a "meta filesystem". HDFS is built on top of the filesystem provided by the OS. MapR has their filesystem called MapR-FS, which is a true filesystem and accesses the raw disk drives.
  • The MapR filesystem is very easy to integrate with other Linux filesystems. When working with HDFS from Apache Hadoop, you usually have to use either the HDFS API or various Hadoop/HDFS command line utilities to interact with HDFS. You cannot use command line utilities native to the host operation system, which is usually Linux. At least, it is not easily done without setting up NFS, gateways, etc. With MapR-FS, you can mount the filesystem within Linux and use the standard Unix commands to manipulate files.
  • The HBase distribution provided by MapR is very similar to the Apache HBase distribution. Cloudera and Hortonworks add GUIs and other various tools on top of their HBase distributions. The MapR HBase distribution is very similar to the Apache distribution, which is nice if you are more accustomed to using Apache HBase.

Cons

Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub

  • As any new technology, difficult to hire resources who know the solution specially in APJC to help with Lab and PoC activities.

HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric (MapR)

  • It takes time to get latest versions of Apache ecosystem tools released as it has to be adapted.
  • When you have issues related to Mapr-FS or Mapr Tables, its hard to figure them out by ourselves.
  • Sometime new ecosystem tools versions are released without proper QA.

Cloudera is expanding with varied range of products and it looks to me as a challenging company and very competitive in the Big Data market. I would recommend to using the latest stable version as new features are added with each version and different bugs are fixed. As Big data is a constantly evolving so trying new Cloudera products helps businesses to stay competitive in the market domain as every big organization is now trying to move to Big Data.

Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub

I have not evaluated any similar products, and in fact, don't know of any direct competitor. Amazon's Redshift has a similar spirit.

I don't believe there is as much support for MapR yet compared to other more widely known products.

HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric (MapR)

  • Increased employee efficiency for sure. Our clients have various levels of expertise in their deployment and user teams, and we never receive complaints about MapR.
  • MapR is used by one of our financial services clients who uses it for fraud detection and user pattern analysis. They are able to turn around data much faster than they previously had with in-house applications
