I am trying to get live twitter data and store it in a Hadoop environment. Currently, I am learning how to push the data into a Cloudera environment and process it.

My questions are:

  1. Is Cloudera the best environment? If not what is the alternative?
  2. My next step is to connect tableau to the hadoop environment and visualize it.

Kindly help me out.


There are three main contenders Cloudera, MapR, and Hortonworks. But among all these 3 Cloudera and MapR are better solutions if money is not an issue and you'd like to get some advanced features.

Cloudera has Impala which may be a killer feature for some. MapR has some unique HA attributes and uses a NFS compatible filesystem. MapR is supposedly the fastest Hadoop solution in the market. You can find more information on this on Quora

Now for your 2nd question, go through these articles.

Hope it helps!
