    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
    Ethan Tran | TrustRadius Reviewer

    DataStax Enterprise

    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.

    Pros

    Cloudera Manager

    • Graphical user interface
    • Management of third party applications start/stop/restart functionality through framework
    • Support of Apache Hadoop ecosystem
    • Ability to do "rolling restarts"

    DataStax Enterprise

    • 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 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

    DataStax Enterprise

    • Cassandra is a bit difficult to learn and understand
    • The costs are slightly higher for our company
    • Hardware requirement is moderate to high at the beginning

    We will continue to use it because it scales well with commodity hardware and we are satisfied with the documentation and support.

    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.

    DataStax has the best community. They have instant customer support to solve problems and are knowledgeable of the problems faced by the customer. The documentation is pretty top-notch.

    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.

    DataStax Enterprise

    DataStax Enterprise offered best-in-class write performance and scalability. The customer support team was very helpful in the adoption of new technology.
