Aerospike Database

Compared to Redis and memcacheD, high availibity is best from Aerospike. Load balancing is also well done through Aerospike. If you're doing K/V lookups data exceeds more than 1MB, then Aerospike definitely fits the bill. However, it is not best as a document store. It is really atrocious in that nature. If anything look @ Mongo or something else then.

Apache Drill

if you're doing joins from hBASE, hdfs, cassandra and redis, then this works.Using it as a be all end all does not suit it. This is not your straight forward magic software that works for all scenarios. One needs to determine the use case to see if Apache Drill fits the needs. 3/4 of the time, usually it does.

Pros

  • Scales really quickly and easily. Can deploy a new cluster or add to a cluster fairly quick.
  • MGMT UI is easy to use. Utilizing cli, makes it easy to "autoscale" for us.
  • The sharding removes any need to overlook to make sure if balanced correctly.
  • HA is dead simple, that almost little to no need figure out how to do it.

  • queries multiple data sources with ease.
  • supports sql, so non technical users who know sql, can run query sets
  • 3rd party tools, like tableau, zoom data and looker were able to connect with no issues

Cons

  • Load balancing per network segments.
  • Reduction in price.
  • Cross datacenter replication usage isn't so straightforward. Sometimes cross dc replication can have issues of bad data..

  • deployment. Not as easy
  • configuration isn't as straight forward, especially with the documentation
  • Garbage collection could be improved upon

If money isn't an issue, and you're not on the cloud, then I'd go with Aerospike. If you're the cloud ie, aws or azure, then i'd stick with dynamoDB or Cosmos then. Aerospike is definitely not something you want to put into the cloud. It doesn't work well w/ cross regions. If cross DC, you'll have to write some stuff for data integrity checks.

if Presto comes up with more support (ie hbase, s3), then its strongly possible that we'll move from apache drill to prestoDB. However, Apache drill needs more configuration ease, especially when it comes to garbage collection tuning. If apache drill could support also sparkSQL and Flume, then it does change drill into being something more valuable than prestoDB

Alternatives Considered

Compared to the above for K/V lookups and writes, it is faster. However, less than 1 MB, i'd use Redis, if you're willing to write package for HA in Redis. However HA between Redis and aerospike, aerospike is top notch. K/V lookups were 20-30% faster than Redis, 50% faster than Mongo, and 45% faster than Cassandra. But again, aerospike is really expensive.

compared to presto, has more support than prestodb.Impala has limitations to what drill can supportapache phoenix only supports for hbase. no support for cassandra. Apache drill was chosen, because of the multiple data stores that it supports htat the other 3 do not support. Presto does not support hbase as of yet. Impala does not support query to cassandra

Return on Investment

  • Less mgmt headaches, prompting time to focus on other issues.
  • HA, required little handholding. And minimization of downtime.
  • Cross region replication is not great, which sometimes requires data integrity checks on your end.

  • Configuration has taken some serious time out.
  • Garbage collection tuning. is a constant hassle. time and effort applied to it, vs dedicating resources elsewhere.
  • w/ sql support, reduces the need of devs to generate the resultset for analysts, when they can run queries themselves (if they know sql).
