Amazon EMR

If you don't have big data ..i.e petabytes of data with terabytes of data generating every day, then don't use Hadoop. Relational databases are enough for terabytes of data. Hadoop is not well suited for transactional systems or data.

Datameer

This review was originally published in 2013.Team composition and skill sets to determine what alternatives are feasible for that organization. Not every team can deliver map/reduce code, nor should they. Not every team can devise a data stream and a set of tools that makes sense in the long run given how fast Hadoop is changing. Authentication/Single sign on requirements can be met inside your network using standard things like LDAP

  • Datameer is an excellent "bridge" to Hadoop. Organizations who want to get started with a Hadoop cluster and the analytic capabilities provided by Hadoop, but do not have a large software development team to assist in creating Map/Reduce code are likely to be able to do some very cool things with their data with Datameer.
  • The support team at Datameer has been very responsive and quite helpful. Online ticket/email for creation of support tickets, phone or web-ex as necessary.
  • Much of the tool will be familiar looking to Excel users.
  • Provides a single interface to many of the things a developer/analyst would need to do.

  • Providing user friendly tools for hdfs access
  • More simpler apis for easy access and processsing
  • Memory requirenent

  • I missed having someplace to write your own code. SQL or JAVA would be really helpful . I am comparing this to what I have seen it Informatica PowerCenter or Business Objects.
  • The number of the functions available in the workbooks could be expanded. There is only so much one can perform with a limited set of functions. One tends to expect the functions available in MS Excel when you see a workbook like environment , especially if the target audience is non-tech savvy managers.
  • Could add some text features like regular expressions for text mining on data .

Employees with intermediate SQL and Hive knowledge can generate reports faster than using Datameer . It does have visualization tool but I don't think it is anything that cannot be accomplished by importing the data in Excel

Easy to use for most things, starts to require some planning as your projects get more complex.

Alternatives Considered

The alternatives to EMR are mainly hadoop distributions owned by the 3 companies above. I have not used the other distributions so it is difficult to comment, but the general tradeoff is, at the cost of a longer setup time and more infra management, you get more flexible versioning and potentially faster access to newer versions of some frameworks such as Spark.

I have compared Datameer with the tools listed above and it blows them out of the water. Datameer is much more user friendly than these tools and is also a lot more powerful. Once the Q1 release comes out with drill down capabilities on the infographics, Datameer will surpass Tableau and Spotfire in visualization.

Return on Investment

  • It was easy to set up initial versions of Spark on this
  • Still used as our compute platform as its easy to manage
  • Certain times we forgot to shut down clusters and were overcharged

  • It had a negative impact as more time was spent doing in Datameer than doing it in Hive SQL
