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

Hortonworks Data Platform is on par with, if not better than, Cloudera or MapR. It provides a big list of components (25-30) that you can pick and use based on your needs. It provides an easy and convenient way to add/remove any of those. It provides a good way of integrating and complimenting components. It provides a very good authentication and authorization using Knox and ranger as well as providing REST API for accessing most components. It has stayed competitive and striving to provide new capabilities as they become available.

Cloudera has been often compared to Hortonworks. We considered the both products and decided to try Hortonworks data platform, by several reasons. One of them was pricing and technical support. Generally speaking Cloudera outperforms Hortonworks in terms of functionalities, but Hortonworks was easy to learn for our first-time use big data analysts and developer. Its tutorials were great as well.

There are many alternatives, but in order to provide a short list:
- Cloudera CDP is the obvious contendant or alternative, being a leader in big data platforms
- MapR

Cloud options:
- AWS
- Azure
- Google

Also, it is worth noting that Hortonworks has been the replacement selected by IBM for its former BigInsights big data infrastructure offering.

Cloudera is a more mature platform. It does not require upgrades as often. However, if you need advanced capabilities, you might be lacking with the Cloudera distribution platform. Many of the other tools in the ecosystem are the same or similar. Cost might also be a factor; you will have to negotiate with both vendors to figure out a specific cost for your organization.

  • Licensing cost is high when compared to other distribution partners
  • VM setup - It's not as good as what Cloudera provides
  • Even if it's a little pricier, I would recommend you to use HDP because in the longer run you want to use more projects that are built on Hadoop rather than just HBase or Search, and at that time, you would want a partner who can help

While Apache Hadoop is completely open sourced, Hortonworks Data Platform offers support as well as keeps pace with the open source versions. Also, the HDP open sources its own products, thus giving back to the community. I find using the Hortonworks Data Platform more intuitive than Cloudera or MapR versions.
