    Cloudera Manager

    It would be suited for customers who feel more comfortable with using a GUI. It is less appropriate for developers or engineers who are comfortable with command line

    Cons

    Cloudera Manager

    • Cloudera Manager needs to be more agile with integrating other applications, such as Accumulo 1.7, to their software.
    • Cloudera Manager can do a better job at explaining why a node fails to add to a cluster using their assistant.
    • Cloudera Manager should show graphs only when there is data, instead of showing just an empty box.
    Ethan Tran | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Confluent Platform

    • Cloud service might need more granular configuration.

    The support from the Confluent platform is great and satisfying. We have been working with Confluent for more than a year now. They sent out resident architects to help us set up Confluent cluster on our cloud and help us troubleshoot problems we have encountered. Overall, it has been a great experience working with the Confluent Platform.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cloudera Manager

    I have not used any competitors, such as Hortonworks, because Cloudera Manager just works and meets all my customer's needs. I only have deployed Hadoop using command line, which is not easy to use and manage.

    Confluent Platform

    We chose to use the Confluent Platform because they provide enterprise-grade customer service support. Whenever we have trouble setting up or using the service, we can create a ticket for them and it will be resolved pretty fast. Kafka is the open-source software that comes without warranty.
