Likelihood to Recommend

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

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

MemSQL is well suited for low latency, high data freshness use cases. It can scale significantly, although its in-memory usage does mean the cost of scaling to data size is higher, so I believe for very large data sets (double-triple digit TBs) where less performance (latency/freshness) is needed it may not be worth the cost. We've currently limited its usage to cases where the performance needs are very high.

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.

  • We wish the product had better support for High Availability of the aggregator. Currently the indexes generated by the two different aggregators are not in the same sequential space and so our apps have more burden to deal with HA.
  • More tools for debugging issues such as high memory usage would be good.
  • The price was the one that kept us away from purchasing for the first few years. Now we are able to afford due to a promotion that gives it at 25% of the list price. Not sure if we'll continue after the promotion offer expires in another 2 years.

I still want to see the performance about using latest version of spark and memsql. About renewal, if there is a new and better version of spark-memsql connector, then maybe.

[Until it is] supported on AWS ECS containers, I will reserve a higher rating for SingleStore. Right now it works well on EC2 and serves our current purpose, [but] would look forward to seeing SingleStore respond to our urge of feature in a shorter time period with high quality and security.

Very responsive to trouble tickets - Often, I think, the SingleStore's monitoring systems have already alerted the engineers by the time I get around to writing a ticket (about 10 - 20 mins after we see a problem). I feel like things are escalated nicely and SingleStore takes resolving trouble tickets seriously. Also SingleStore follows up after incidents to with a post mortem and actionable takaways to improve the product. Very satisfied here.

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.
Ethan Tran | TrustRadius Reviewer

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

We need a flexible way to start the transformation on-premise and then move to the cloud. The lack of functionality and the easy way to scale out in multiple environments makes SingleStore the better choice.

Return on Investment

Cloudera Manager

  • Cloudera Manager has allowed our organization to deploy Apache Hadoop to operations quicker and with less training versus using the command line exclusively.
  • Increased employee efficiency.
  • Increased product adoption.
Charles Inglese | TrustRadius Reviewer

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

  • It can save thousands of dollars in licensing. However you still have to provision big clusters, which sometimes it's more expensive than having traditional technologies and it's difficult to create business cases for our customers
  • Time. Differently SS is key to save time, and time is money.
  • Enhanced user experience (for the IT/BI teams)
