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.

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

SingleStore [formerly (MemSQL)] is very well suited for places- where the components are processing very large amounts of data and requires very low latency.- Columnstore compression of data reduces the time to respond. Compression resulted in quick responses which are not achieved using the other DB tools.- The concept of Rowstore and implementation on frequently used tables results in support of high OLTP.Not suited/less appropriate- The In-memory(Rowstore) and col-store does not share the same language compatibility. When required the transition form other table type more efforts are required.- SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL) connection between AWS cloud failed when partitioning is higher for data processing.- Administration is sometime bit confusing when providing layered access to different teams.

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
Anson Abraham | TrustRadius Reviewer

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

  • Ease of use (installation, managed service, pipelines)
  • Hybrid configuration (on-premise & cloud), analytical and transactional workload
  • ANSI SQL as a standard
  • Runs on any major cloud platform

Cons

Apache Drill

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

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

  • Does not provide adequate support for data discovery apps, i.e. Power BI.
  • It would be great to have a native load balancing component for dealing with aggregator failure. Otherwise having a Child Aggregator becomes optional since not all the customers can afford an external balancing solution and does not feel confortable with switching between aggregators manually.
  • They used to have certifications and training in development and administration. That is very important to have, since other competitors does provide access to those sort of things and although they have free tutorials/videos, that doesn't provide an in-depth understanding.

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

I still want to see the performance about using latest version of spark and memsql. About renewal, if there is a new and better version of spark-memsql connector, then maybe.

[Until it is] supported on AWS ECS containers, I will reserve a higher rating for SingleStore. Right now it works well on EC2 and serves our current purpose, [but] would look forward to seeing SingleStore respond to our urge of feature in a shorter time period with high quality and security.

Very responsive to trouble tickets - Often, I think, the SingleStore's monitoring systems have already alerted the engineers by the time I get around to writing a ticket (about 10 - 20 mins after we see a problem). I feel like things are escalated nicely and SingleStore takes resolving trouble tickets seriously. Also SingleStore follows up after incidents to with a post mortem and actionable takaways to improve the product. Very satisfied here.

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

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

I guess the main difference is how the memory is used for stacking and storing data until it reaches the final destination, the performance is awesome compared with others and when you have a real time business with a certain complexity. The development team would be more familiarized with the SQL environment and there’s practically a zero learning curve, when you compare this with other data bases you’re going to find that there’s a huge saving in time and money.

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).
Anson Abraham | TrustRadius Reviewer

SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

  • License cost is lower than many of its competitors.
  • Requires very little administration. We are getting by without even hiring an admin.
  • Integrating the pipelines and the DB engine simplifies the solution architecture, which means less infrastructure is needed, less license cost, and shorter development cycle.
