Hortonworks Data Platform Review: "Hortonworks is at the leading edge"

Typically it is used as an enterprise platform. There are very few companies that use it only departmentally. It solved the business problems of maintaining a pure open source Hadoop environment. It also solves for Disaster Recovery and Security. Hadoop was not designed for Security, but with Hortonworks Ranger and Kerberos, you can implement a world class security framework.
  • Security with Ranger. Cell level security. Integration with Kerberos and LDAP.
  • Ambari management console. UI and API that allows complete management of the platform.
  • PLUS components have metadata, streaming, monitoring and other tools that flesh out the offering.
  • Installation is highly complex and needs to be streamlined.
  • The platform itself needs to be a little more stable. It might help to actually slow down releases to make sure they are more stable.
  • Upgrading from lower versions should be easier.
Hortonworks Data Platform is well suited:
  • If you require the newest releases and capabilities and are prepared to upgrade frequently
  • If you want full, cell level, ticketing and perimeter security
  • If you want metadata, streaming and other PLUS component capabilities
If you are not prepared to do upgrades at least on a quarterly basis, DO NOT use Hortonworks. If you have a very plain vanilla implementation, you might want to look at pure open source Hadoop.

  1. Building and deploying large scale Hadoop/Hive/Yarn/Spark clusters with hundreds of nodes in distributed environments on Cloud
  2. Process Web/Mobile traffic and provide customizable customer experience
  3. Advanced Analytics picture of customer behaviors and shopping patterns
  4. Provide personalized website for each customer based on their needs
  5. Use it to handle the entire catalog of major retailers
  • Knowledge base of the original committers
  • SmartSense of HDP is a great way of understanding the problems before they happen
  • Integrates very well with Apache Phoenix (SQL on Hadoop)
  • Very good support team
  • Provides more features for the money
  • Licensing cost is high when compared to other distribution partners
  • VM setup - It's not as good as what Cloudera provides
  • Monitoring isn't that great. Ambari Management interface on HDP is just a basic one and does not have many rich features
  • Version upgrades are more challenging than anticipated. Each upgrade has it's own quirks and compatibility issues that need to be resolved manually
It's the right platform for our data science & engineering team who can use it as a ecosystem to solve major retail problems

Hortonworks provides a framework comprising open source projects which is good for any open source lovers. Easy to start with its great tutorials.

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.

  • Hortonworks Data Platform only provides a Hadoop platform. You must build your application by yourself.
  • It is difficult to stream process data. Again, you must configure the stream data process by yourself.
The key question is does it have an exit plan. Once you use proprietary software, it's very difficult to change platforms and you must pay an annual fee. Hortonworks Data Platform is 100% open source and you can change the platform without worrying about a contract.
