Actian Matrix

Actian matrix is not good for small data sets. If you have a limited data pool, or do not plan on having multiple users/clients accessing a data source, stick with a more traditional relational database model - Access for the truly small user base, or a DB2 or Oracle back end if your going to have multiple users, and moderate sized data. Actian is for LARGE data sets (Big Data, in the industry parlance). Millions of rows of data from multiple sources with various down stream systems accessing the database. It is for data analytics of large data groups and intense data mining.

Arm Treasure Data

Arm Treasure Data is really well designed for data management. It is a high-quality data lake, but even more than that there are many features developed specifically for real-life issues that most data engineers are used to encountering and can be hard to solve. For instance, the management of the jobs is really easy to handle and understand at first sight. Also, the parametrization in workflows made the deployment of the tool in all zones of the world as easy as a copy/paste. It would have taken weeks to adapt the workflow to the specificity of each country otherwise (zip code, phone numbers, SSN equivalent, etc.)On the other hand, the creation of not-available connectors (not that many, but existing) inside the platform may be improved. It is now configurable only in CLI.

Pros

  • Super fast. Aggregate query such as SUM(), Count() returns result within seconds from a table with more than billion records.
  • Excellent data compression.
  • Easy maintenance. We managed this database without having a full time DBA.
  • Support ANSI SQL and ODBC/JDBC. It's easy to connect to this database from other systems.

  • Data engineering as a service. It's like PaaS but for data infrastructure.
  • Rich end-points. Almost all major services are connected to Treasure Data.
  • Easy to use the web UI, yet feature rich.

Cons

  • Dashboard for Admin instead of a linux console.
  • Admin with ability to kill inactive sessions when sessions reaches to more than allowed sessions. We ended up restarting the database.
  • Ability to easily scale up database by adding extra node.
  • Better support from Actian.

  • The javascript sdk returns data in jsonlines format when json is chosen, would prefer using actual json
  • https://treasure-data.ideas.aha.io/ideas/SQL-I-107 - my request for a default sql statement when opening a table
  • Speed, speed speed, we have about a 2-3 minute lag time between posting data and seeing it in the dashboard, there would always be room for improvement here

Support has always been very responsive and digs in to help solve any problems. They have a great approach with both beginner users of the product as well as with more experienced users with more in depth questions or challenges.

Leader failover setup is the toughest and lack of proper documentation is making things tough.

Alternatives Considered

Actian Matrix is our first big data analytics storage platform, and as I was not involved in the POC process to compare it to other products out on the market, unfortunately I cannot say if it is better than other Big Data storage options. I can say that it out performs products such as Oracle or UDB in regards to the volume of data it can easily index and handle.

Treasure Data is better in terms of performance, the SDK is more flexible and Treasure Data is not limited to a static format like Swrve. The competitors provide more out-of-the-box solutions but the quality we can aim for with Treasure Data is better in any case.

Return on Investment

  • I cannot comment on the specific numbers, all I can say is that switching to the backend greatly improved our processing speed. The more we process through our systems, the more clients we can serve. Which should bump ROI.

  • Setup cost is lower since the whole system is easy-to-use.
  • Dashboards created using TD are wildly used in the company.
