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.

MarkLogic

If you are storing META data then MarkLogic is super useful as it retrieves everything so fast, while storing the whole data shows performance issues some times. If you have legacy systems then migrating from it would really require sweat and blood, on the other hand if you are in systems like Node.js you can simply integrate two systems easily. If you don't know how in the end your your data schema will look like then it's better to make a prototype using MarkLogic.

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

  • MarkLogic does everything well, but search is the "bread and butter" operation. All data is indexed on-the-fly and the API's offer a multitude of ways to create incredibly powerful search applications. The search engine isn't bolted on- it's at the core of the database. Search suggestion, relevance, advanced grammar, spell correction (did you mean?), paginated search over massive numbers of records, etc. is all at the fingertips of the developer. The database scales to massive size and yet search returns sub-second results for the most complex search parameters.
  • High availability, disaster recovery, and scaling is handled incredibly well. In the AWS cloud, it is trivial to set up a MarkLogic system to elastically scale with data and request volume- truly elastic, adding nodes and removing them as needed. Databases can replicate to a remote datacenter in real-time to provide instant cut-over for datacenter loss. Clustered servers provide highly available replication of data to instantly recover from node failures.
  • Security is increasingly important as data takes center stage in an enterprise. MarkLogic's role-based security is baked in to every query. This is battle-hardened content control.
  • Flexibility is unrivaled. Any data can be stored reliably and securely in the MarkLogic database. Records can be stored as text, XML, JSON, or binary. All text, XML, and JSON is instantly indexed and the various strategies for indexing are easy to configured and well documented. MarkLogic is also a powerful semantic triple store. Unlike any other NoSQL solution, MarkLogic can handle full documents, graphs, key-value pairs, binaries, etc. in a single database, providing powerful and unique ways of combining enterprise data.

Cons

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

  • MarkLogic still has a long way to go in fostering the developer community. Many developers are gravitating to the simple integrations and do not delve into the deeper capabilities. They have made tremendous strides in recent months and I am sure this will improve over time.
  • Many of the best features are left on the floor by enterprises who end up implementing MarkLogic as a data store. MarkLogic needs to help customers find ways to better leverage their investment and be more creative in how they use the product.
  • Licensing costs become a major hurdle for adoption. The pricing model has improved for basic implementations, but the costs seem very prohibitive for some verticals and for some of the most advanced features.

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

Our firm has consultants for a number of technologies/disciplines. While I am capable and experienced in other areas, my preference is always to work on engagements with MarkLogic. As an architect and developer, I get far more flexibility and performance from one product instead of cobbling together a stack of several products to provide a capability that MarkLogic has rolled into one great product.

Very little about it can be done better or with greater ease. Even things that seem difficult aren't really that bad. There's multiple ways to accomplish any admin task. MarkLogic requires a fraction of administrative effort that you see with enterprise RDBMS like Oracle. MarkLogic is continually improving the tools to simplify cluster configuration and maintenance.

There's always room for improvement. Some problems get solved faster than others, of course. MarkLogic's direct support is very responsive and professional. If they can't help immediately, they always have good feedback and are eager to receive information and details to work to replicate the problem. They are quick to escalate major support issues and production show-stopping problems.In addition to MarkLogic's direct support, there are several employees who are very active among the community and many questions and common issues get quick attention from helpful responses to email and StackOverflow questions.

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

There's no other single product that directly compares to all the features that are packed into MarkLogic. Generally speaking, you're looking at a combination of many products to build a stack that competes feature-for-feature. Even if you're leveraging only a limited set of features, the ease of use and robustness of MarkLogic justify the licensing cost differential. TCO makes MarkLogic a better value.

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).

  • We've had customers who have been able to save their organization hundreds of thousands of dollars by preventing duplication of costly processes. Powerful search capabilities into what different business units had available drives better decisions.
  • Ability to receive content in personalized ways has lead to significant new sales opportunities for some of our customers. This personalization includes on-demand publishing of specific articles on specific topics in addition to recommendation engines and shopping cart analysis.
  • One customer that has an extremely advanced application leveraging nearly every feature MarkLogic has to offer found nearly 3:1 cost savings using MarkLogic when they performed an analysis of projected development and maintenance costs to replicate all their functionality on open source stacks.
