Apache Flume

Apache Flume is well suited in small batch and near real time processing projects, taking data from one point to another with local processing (I mean not external enrichment).
Filtering, transforming and multiple push destinations are common grounds for Flume.
It is not so nice to use if your data needs external enrichment (taking data from external databases or web services), as transactions and (micro)batches may lead to reprocessing and it relies upon the application to avoid duplicates.

Datameer

Datameer is a great tool if someone is capable of keeping the most recent version of the tool up to date along with the most recent version of the distribution of Hadoop. The tool is easy to support but it must have someone who can run the back end processes

Pros

  • Multiple sources of data (sources) and destinations (sinks) that allows you to move data form and to any relevant data storage
  • It is very easy to setup and run
  • Very open to personalization, you can create filters, enrichment, new sources and destinations

  • It is the only solution out there that provides a true face to Hadoop and all the other technologies around it.
  • It enables regular users and analysts with capabilities that are only available for data scientists in other solutions.
  • It provides an "Excel-like" interface to have quick and simple access to data in Hadoop.

Cons

  • Apache Flume develops new functionality at a slower pace than other OpenSource projects, it is well behing Kafka and has some compatibiliy issues with latest releases
  • It lack HA or FT, it relies on third party management software like Hortonworks or Cloudera

  • Datameer does not have drill down capabilities on their infographics. This capability is will be supported by the end of Q1.
  • Datameer can be buggy if the version is not supported by the distribution of Hadoop being used.
  • Datameer does not make it simple to create samples of data sets.

Easy to use for most things, starts to require some planning as your projects get more complex.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Flume is a very good solution when your project is not very complex at transformation and enrichment, and good if you have an external management suite like Cloudera, Hortonworks, etc. But it is not a real EAI or ETL like AB Initio or Attunity so
you need to know exactly what you want.On the other hand being an opensource project give Apache a lot of room to personalize thanks to its plug-able architecture and has a very nice performance having a very low CPU and Memory footprint, a single server can do the job on many occasions, as opposed to the multi-server architecture of paid products.

I have compared Datameer with the tools listed above and it blows them out of the water. Datameer is much more user friendly than these tools and is also a lot more powerful. Once the Q1 release comes out with drill down capabilities on the infographics, Datameer will surpass Tableau and Spotfire in visualization.

Return on Investment

  • Flume has simplified a lot many of our ingest procedures, easier to deploy and integrate than a classical EAI, reducing the time to market
  • But opposed to EAIs if the project starts to grow in complexity Apache Flume project may not be as suitable

  • Datameer has significantly increased the speed in which we run queries.
  • Datameer has significantly increased the ease of use and is very user friendly.
  • Datameer has brought a new look into batch processing and presented new possibilities.
