Apache
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.

Percona
It offers good support for the implementation of solutions in the public and on-premises cloud and integration with other services such as Hashicorp Vault for data encryption. One of the main advantages is the ease of configuration, in addition to offering transaction support for the different operations and scalability of the servers.

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

One aspect to improve is the user experience since sometimes the steps to take are not clear and the user may need to review some of the actions before continuing with the next ones. Another aspect to improve is the documentation and support for developers who want to know the tool.

Alternatives Considered
Apache
compared to presto, has more support than prestodb. Impala has limitations to what drill can support apache 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

Percona
At the performance level, it is similar to other solutions such as MongoDB and Percona Server for MySQL. and at the customization level, it offers better support for the development of specific solutions that seek good performance in transactions.

Return on Investment
Apache
  • 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).

Percona
  • It offers a good alternative solution compared with other open source databases.
  • We have many resources at the documentation level and other tools that help the integration with different programming languages.
