Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Elastic MapReduce

We use Amazon EMR for big data storage and processing. It's cluster architecture with each department having different clusters. It's great for processing and storage of large volumes of data, specifically, the data which is unstructured and generates very rapidly, like network logs.
  • Distributed computing
  • Fault tolerant
  • Uptime
  • Providing user friendly tools for hdfs access
  • More simpler apis for easy access and processsing
  • Memory requirenent
  • Better accesss to business data
  • Faster business decisions
  • Better storage and processing
If you don't have big data ..i.e petabytes of data with terabytes of data generating every day, then don't use Hadoop. Relational databases are enough for terabytes of data. Hadoop is not well suited for transactional systems or data.
