Overall Satisfaction with Hadoop

My organization uses Apache Hadoop for log analysis/data mining of data fetched from different practices in the US, Canada and India. It uses this data for showing analytical graphs and the progress of our software in those regions. Data from the practices is optimized and consumed by the customer applications. It provides faster performance and ease for data usage.
  • Hadoop is a very cost effective storage solution for businesses’ exploding data sets.
  • Hadoop can store and distribute very large data sets across hundreds of servers that operate, therefore it is a highly scalable storage platform.
  • Hadoop can process terabytes of data in minutes and faster as compared to other data processors.
  • Hadoop File System can store all types of data, structured and unstructured, in nodes across many servers
  • For now, Hadoop is doing great and is very productive.
Not used any other product than Hadoop and I don't think our company will switch to any other product, as Hadoop is providing excellent results. Our company is growing rapidly, Hadoop helps to keep up our performance and meet customer expectations. We also use HDFS which provides very high bandwidth to support MapReduce workloads.
Hadoop can be used for many data sources. HDFS data warehouse allows storing all the semi and multi structured data and offers processing data at peta byte scale. It also provides a single storage for all the massive data and machine learning algorithms are run on the data. Hadoop allows querying / joining this data with other data sets.
Everybody hates anonymous users browsing through their data. Hadoop Distributed File System supports authorization through the traditional file permission model as well as ACLs (Access Control Lists). Therefore, Hadoop makes it possible to control access to files and directories for users and groups. Also Hadoop and its related components do offer built-in audit logging which helps in tracking user actions.
Hadoop is well suited for healthcare organizations that deal with huge amounts of data and optimizing data.
