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.

Hive

Hive will fit right in to any workflow that manages multiple projects. It's also a great fit for collaboration on a per-project basis as external users can collaborate with paid users. Across a very large team it would take more planning on how to fit multiple workflows and groups into the workspace but it can be done.

Pros

Apache Drill

  • 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

Apache Drill

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

Hive

  • You can't move urgent actions to the top.
  • It takes a little too much time to load up on the desktop version.
  • There's definitely room for improvement in keyboard shortcuts.

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

I love Hive so much because it has made a huge difference regarding team communication and project management at the same time. We experienced almost no bugs and in the few cases that we did have some trouble, the customer service team was very responsive and solved our problems very quickly.

Our CSR is easily accessible and they have support built into the app itself. They also have a pretty robust support site. We also took advantage of the free trial and learned so much by putting Hive through the paces and figuring out the best way to mold it to our needs.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Drill

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

Hive

I would say that in comparison to Asana, Hive is a better interface an UI. I think Asana is more robust in terms of what it can do in conjunction with Confluence but I think Hive is a better entry-level model for new employees. Hive is much simpler and more straight forward and its integration with Slack is preferred.

Return on Investment

Apache Drill

  • 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).

Hive

  • Positive ROI comes from our whole team being on the same board. We used to have separate boards for each group.
