Hadoop

Apache Hadoop (and its subsequent add-ons) are well-suited to larger, unstructured data flows, such as aggregation of web traffic or advertising. Geospatial algorithms and their outputs are well-suited for this kind of aggregation as structuring that data is challenging, but leaving it unstructured and performing queries as-needed is a better fit for most business models. With the advent of data science, I would expect Hadoop fits a LOT of their initial outputs quite well.

MonetDB

MonetDB is great when you are performing adhoc queries on a large set of data. For example, if you store data in a typical RDBMS such as MySQL or Postgres and want to join large tables for analytics but the query runs unacceptably slow then MonetDB can act as a second database to offload complex queries. Based on my experience, it may not be a production-ready database since there aren't many DBAs familiar with it and due to lack of documentation, maintenance can become a little tricky.

Pros

Hadoop

  • HDFS is reliable and solid, and in my experience with it, there are very few problems using it
  • Enterprise support from different vendors makes it easier to 'sell' inside an enterprise
  • It provides High Scalability and Redundancy
  • Horizontal scaling and distributed architecture

MonetDB

  • It performs very well with both a simple and complex query with multiple join operations.
  • It offers more advanced, enterprise level features such as clustering, data partitioning, and distributed query processing.
  • Loading bulk data is quite fast by taking advantage of multiple cores/CPUs.

Cons

Hadoop

  • Hadoop is a batch oriented processing framework, it lacks real time or stream processing.
  • Hadoop's HDFS file system is not a POSIX compliant file system and does not work well with small files, especially smaller than the default block size.
  • Hadoop cannot be used for running interactive jobs or analytics.

MonetDB

  • This is an open source software so there are obvious drawbacks, the biggest of which is a lack of documentation.
  • MonetDB does not seem to be well known outside of the academic environment so there is less information when you are searching for answers of any type.
  • I'd like to see more use cases and/or best practices so that commercial companies like ours can optimally use all of its highly performant features.
  • The code is written in C/C++ and this can be negative if you are a mainly java-shop and need UDF - User Defined Function.

Hadoop is organization-independent and can be used for various purposes ranging from archiving to reporting and can make use of economic, commodity hardware. There is also a lot of saving in terms of licensing costs - since most of the Hadoop ecosystem is available as open-source and is free

Great! Hadoop has an easy to use interface that mimics most other data warehouses. You can access your data via SQL and have it display in a terminal before exporting it to your business intelligence platform of choice. Of course, for smaller data sets, you can also export it to Microsoft Excel.

Hadoop

We went with a third party for support, i.e., consultant. Had we gone with Azure or Cloudera, we would have obtained support directly from the vendor. my rating is more on the third party we selected and doesn't reflect the overall support available for Hadoop. I think we could have done better in our selection process, however, we were trying to use an already approved vendor within our organization. There is plenty of self-help available for Hadoop online.

Hadoop is a complex topic and best suited for classrom training. Online training are a waste of time and money.

Alternatives Considered

Hadoop

Not used any other product than Hadoop and I don't think our company will switch to any other product, as Hadoop is providing excellent results. Our company is growing rapidly, Hadoop helps to keep up our performance and meet customer expectations. We also use HDFS which provides very high bandwidth to support MapReduce workloads.

MonetDB

There is a plethora of choices when it comes to NoSQL and columnar based databases. We use not one but sometimes 2 or 3 of them to carry out a specific purpose. We chose MonetDB because our engineering team enjoys working with open source software and appreciates its simplicity although becoming familiar with it did take time. I would not deploy MonetDB to production but it's a great backup option.

Return on Investment

Hadoop

  • Hadoop has allowed us to scale out a few of our tier-1, customer facing applications to provide very fast access to reports and analytics.
  • Hadoop was easily implemented by our Linux team and onboarded by our Hadoop Admins.
  • Hadoop has been a very stable platform and only goes down due to server patching or other maintenance.
Mark McCully | TrustRadius Reviewer

MonetDB

  • If you are familiar with a general database concept and played with open source products before then MonetDB will give you immediate return in terms of productivity since developers can quickly develop and verify their test cases involving back-end database with a large sample data set.
  • There is a stiff learning curve due to lack of documentation and sparse information available on the internet.
  • Overall experience has been positive since MonetDB gives you another option when it comes to building out a data warehouse.
