Overall Satisfaction with Hortonworks Data Platform

We use [Hortonworks Data Platform] in our big data development process data pipeline. In our test environment, we develop some applications. We install a physical cluster and use it for both competence center research and proof of concept design and for development purpose. Some projects are now in production environments for our customer
  • Monitoring console
  • Spark data processing
  • UI application
  • Acl with ranger in service and hdfs data
  • Upgrade service version require OS competence
  • Search features like cloudera search
  • 3 projects in production environemts
  • Use to check distributed algorithm performance without cloud costs
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

I recommend [Hortonworks Data Platform] as Big Data platform in order to start your developments. It's free. It's easy to use. You can install in more server or use a sandbox with you favorite virtualization platform ( vmware or oracle virtualbox). There is also a containerized version.
Manage our data in hdfs is simple; you can interact with server with REST API.
