Hortonworks Data Platform

I find HDP easy to use and solves most of the problems for people looking to manage their big data. Evaluating the Hortonworks Data Platform is easy as it is free to download and install in your cluster. Single node cluster available as Sandbox is also easy for POCs.

Pros

Hortonworks Data Platform

  • It does a good job of packaging a lot of big data components into bundles and lets you use the ones you are interested in or need. It supports an extensive list of components which lets us solve many problems.
  • It provides the ability to manage installations and maintenance using Apache Ambari. It helps us in using management packs to install/upgrade components easily. It also helps us add, remove components, add, remove hosts, perform upgrades in a convenient manner. It also provides alerts and notifications and monitors the environment.
  • What they excel in is packaging open source components that are relevant and are useful to solve and complement each other as well as contribute to enhancing those components. They do a great job in the community to keep on top of what would be useful to users, fixing bugs and working with other companies and individuals to make the platform better.

Cons

Hortonworks Data Platform

  • Since it doesn't come with propriety tools for big data management, additional integration is need (for query handling, search, etc).
  • It was very straightforward to store clinical data without relations, such as data from sensors of a medical device. But it has limitations when needed to combine the data with other clinical data in structured format (e.g. lab results, diagnosis).
  • Overall look and feel of front-end management tools (e.g. monitoring) are not good. It is not bad but it doesn't look professional.

  • Cannot use functions such as pivot, which is in MS SQL Server
  • Objects such as tables do not pop up automatically in the editor, users needs to navigate themselves to know the object names

Alternatives Considered

Hortonworks Data Platform

We chose [Hortonworks Data Platform] because it's free and because [it] was an IBM partner, suggested as big data platform after biginsights platform.
You can install in more physical computer without high specs, then you can use it in order to learn how to deploy, configure a complete big data cluster.
We installed also in a cloud infrastructure of 5 virtual machine

IBM Netezza Performance Server

IBM Netezza Data Warehouse Appliances is well suited for use by a larger organization wanting to solve the business problems related to the collection, transformation, and dissemination of our company's business process information. These means the small data sets or data warehouse less than 1TB are best done with a different tool like SQL Server.

Return on Investment

Hortonworks Data Platform

  • It is difficult to have a negative impact, because the required investment is not that high.
  • The big open community behind Hortonworks and related Apache Project makes it easy to put 'the wheel to meet the road' quite quickly.
  • We have seen management meetings where the attendants were impressed by the results achieved with the datalake built on HDP.

IBM Netezza Performance Server

  • It allows us to work together simultaneously in the database to query our custom results.
  • It requires users to know the object name as it does not pop up in their text editor. Thus, users take more time in writing queries.
