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.

Hortonworks Data Platform

It is best used where organizations need to build a data lake from scratch, leveraging its capabilities for ingesting huge volumes from a vast number of different sources -including sensors, logs, text, transactional systems and more. However, if you just want to try a data science use case, think about if your volume demands such deployment.

Pros

  • 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

  • First, Hortonworks Data Platform is 100% open source and has no proprietary software. Thus, we don't need to worry about an exit plan.
  • Next, Hortonworks Data Platform is simple and well documented so that it is easy to implement clusters by following the documents.
  • Then, Hortonworks Data Platform updates new technologies for everyone as open source frequently.
  • And finally, it's easy to update new versions of Hortonworks Data Platform.

Cons

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

  • Since it doesn't come with propriety tools for big data management, additional integration is need (for query handling, search, etc).
  • It was very straightforward to store clinical data without relations, such as data from sensors of a medical device. But it has limitations when needed to combine the data with other clinical data in structured format (e.g. lab results, diagnosis).
  • Overall look and feel of front-end management tools (e.g. monitoring) are not good. It is not bad but it doesn't look professional.

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 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

Cloudera is a more mature platform. It does not require upgrades as often. However, if you need advanced capabilities, you might be lacking with the Cloudera distribution platform. Many of the other tools in the ecosystem are the same or similar. Cost might also be a factor; you will have to negotiate with both vendors to figure out a specific cost for your organization.

Return on Investment

  • 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).

  • Ability to analyze data in a different format efficiently is a positive impact of using Hadoop.
