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.

SAP Vora

I spent more than 1 year with SAP Vora, SAP Datahub and SAP Leonardo with ML, iOt. I believe this product has potential but it is not easy to adopt. SAP has to keep in mind how open-source big data technologies are able to deliver quick results. I know SAP is stabilizing and fighting hard against many open source technologies, but it still has a long way to go there.

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

SAP Vora

  • Can fetch the data from different sources like Big data, as well as on regular DBs, and generate the report in efficient way
  • With the SQL editor as its main component, developers can easily query with the request to meet the requirement with no extra effort
  • In-memory functionality is the biggest strength, as it provides output in a fast and quick manner.

Cons

Apache Drill

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

SAP Vora

  • Vora 2.0 in on premise scenarios could be improved, as adoption of the cloud is not an easy sell.
  • Kubernetes and Docker integration need to be more seamless and quick to understand. If this is simplified, it will be easy to adopt
  • Data hub orchestration and integrations could be simplified so that quick adoption within SAP BW, ECC, S4 HANa scenarios is possible.

Apache Drill 7.0
Based on 1 answer
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

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

SAP Vora

We selected SAP VORA because we needed acclerated integration with different sources with a huge amount of data. Also the data de-duplication has easily eliminated the different entries in a fastest and enhanced way, which ultimately leads us and the customer to prefer SAP Vora against different products, and has helped eliminate any limitations in using and playing with our data lake.

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).

SAP Vora

  • Negative impact would be Poc and RFI will need more time to adopt and decision making gets delayed
  • Positive impact would be it's a great leap from SAP to adopt a Big data technologies and AI within cloud stream. But selling is going to take time.
