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 supports fully ACID transaction and I think this is very rare in a NoSQL system.
  • The recent version of MarkLogic has Integration with Node.js, REST, JSON which has really made the developers life easier to build integrated systems.
  • MarkLogic provides superb documentation for us. It really helps to understand which features work how. Example is- the whole dedicated website for it. https://docs.marklogic.com/
  • From the point of infrastructure - Installation, configuration and deployment is very fast. Compared to RDBMS , it's really easy to scale MarkLogic horizontally by adding nodes.

Cons

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

  • MarkLogic is not cheap, either for the software itself, the hardware to run it on, or the investment in learning necessary to use it effectively. While MarkLogic has gone to great pains to add multiple interfaces so that a deep understanding of XQuery is theoretically not necessary, I feel XQuery is essential to understanding the product well enough to use it in production applications.
  • Specifically, it is my understanding that switching database contexts is expensive in terms of performance. There could be be a improvement in the ability to query across databases, or even across clusters, that could drive greater flexibility in design decisions.
  • The security model definitely could be improved to facilitate sharing users, roles, and permissions across clusters. Building your own security model to allow users access to data on different clusters is very complex and leads to a number of performance issues.

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

We use it as the core for a lot of our commercial content, so we would renew because we want to continue support and upgrades on the product. We also have plans for further use of the newer features.

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

In comparison to both Mongo and HBase, MarkLogic wins in terms of integration to other systems, while loosing in terms of pricing. In terms of documentation all will be in same range putting MarkLogic a bit forward.

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).

  • ROI is pretty good.
  • It has more positive impact, fewer negative impact.
