Flux7’s white paper addresses the distributors of Hadoop, an open source framework for storing extremely large amounts of data, or Big Data, a term that’s been buzzing around a lot lately. Its use is a trend that’s been increasing at a steady pace over the past few years. Undoubtedly, big business executive management and developers also have encountered the term Hadoop when hearing and learning about Big Data.
“Our comparative report is focused on easing the selection of a Hadoop distribution,” said Aater Suleman, CEO, Flux7. “The beauty of Hadoop distributions is that they can be customized with a wide range of feature sets that address the specific needs of different sets of users. When choosing where to spend its money, it’s essential that a company find a distribution that’s flexible enough to meet both current and future needs. Our white paper specifically lays that out for decision-makers and users.”
In the white paper, some key results about the Hadoop distributors that Flux7 tested include:
- Cloudera: smooth to implement, intuitive to use, and features a rich interface that employs all available screen space to display practical administrator information in a clean, uncluttered manner.
- HortonWorks: the only distribution supporting Windows.
- Intel: interface is very easy to navigate, and its search facility is also quite easy to use.
- MapR: the most innovative of the four distributions tested, it displayed a stellar implementation, performing 2x times faster than the others in several of the benchmarks.
