Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub

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.

Qubole

I find Qubole is well suited for getting started analyzing data in the cloud without being locked in to a specific cloud vendor's tooling other than the underlying filesystem. Since the data itself is not isolated to any Qubole cluster, it can be easily be collected back into a cloud-vendor's specific tools for further analysis, therefore I find it complementary to any offerings such as Amazon EMR or Google DataProc.

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).

Qubole

  • From a UI perspective, I find Qubole's closest comparison to Cloudera's HUE; it provides a one-stop shop for all data browsing and querying needs.
  • Auto scaling groups and auto-terminating clusters provides cost savings for idle resources.
  • Qubole fits itself well into the open-source data science market by providing a choice of tools that aren't tied to a specific cloud vendor.

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.

Qubole

  • Providing an open selection of all cloud provider instance types with no explanation as to their ideal use cases causes too much confusion for new users setting up a new cluster. For example, not everyone knows that Amazon's R or X-series models are memory optimized, while the C and M-series are for general computation.
  • I would like to see more ETL tools provided other than DistCP that allow one to move data between Hadoop Filesystems.
  • From the cluster administration side, onboarding of new users for large companies seems troublesome, especially when trying to create individual cluster per team within the company. Having the ability to debug and share code/queries between users of other teams / clusters should also be possible.

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.

Personally, I have no issues using Amazon EMR with Hue and Zeppelin, for example, for data science and exploratory analysis. The benefits to using Qubole are that it offers additional tooling that may not be available in other cloud providers without manual installation and also offers auto-terminating instances and scaling groups.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Qubole

Qubole was decided on by upper management rather than these competitive offerings. I find that Databricks has a better Spark offering compared to Qubole's Zeppelin notebooks.

Return on Investment

Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub

  • The tools in Cloudera Enterprise have enabled us to perform seamless upgrades and monitor the clusters
  • Investing in the support enables us to engage with Cloudera to get access to required patches and backports in case of bugs which helps with wider adoption of open source software in the enterprise.
  • Voice of the customer enabled us to put forth requests for new features across various components.
Rakesh Neelavar Rao | TrustRadius Reviewer

Qubole

  • We like to say that Qubole has allowed for "data democratization", meaning that each team is responsible for their own set of tooling and use cases rather than being limited by versions established by products such as Hortonworks HDP or Cloudera CDH
  • One negative impact is that users have over-provisioned clusters without realizing it, and end up paying for it. When setting up a new cluster, there are too many choices to pick from, and data scientists may not understand the instance types or hardware specs for the datasets they need to operate on.
