Overall Satisfaction with Cloudera Enterprise

I first worked with Hadoop before there was Cloudera Enterprise. I remember quite well editing files across systems and devising methods to watch for changes, the pain of working out user access privileges, and the search for a sane package management. Cloudera Manager provides tools for all of this and more. The BI engineering team bootstrapped the Hadoop ecosystem, and I have just recently come in to support expansion. Cloudera Enterprise is great, and I appreciate supporting a company like Cloudera which is firmly rooted in the community.
  • Gives a view of the entire ecosystem
  • Enables the management of a cluster as a cluster, not individual servers
  • Eliminates the possibility of manual error executing complex administration tasks
  • I have no suggestions...yet.
  • Faster deployment of the environment
I have not evaluated any similar products, and in fact, don't know of any direct competitor. Amazon's Redshift has a similar spirit.
It's a high quality product, from people that fully understand the space, and also support the tech community.
A really small, sandbox installation might be better off without Cloudera Enterprise at the start. If you subsequently move to Cloudera Enterprise, the benefits will be very obvious.
