Likelihood to Recommend

Apache Hive

Apache Hive shines for ad-hoc analysis and plugging into BI tools. Its SQL-like syntax allows for ease of use not for only for engineers but also for data analysts. Through our experience, there are probably more desirable tools to use if you are planning on integrating Hive into your processing pipeline.

InfluxDB

InfluxDB is very good at storing monitoring metrics (e.g. performance data). InfluxDB is not the right choice if you need to store other data types (like plain text, data relations etc.).

Pros

Apache Hive

  • Hive syntax is almost like SQL, so for someone already familiar with SQL it takes almost no effort to pick up Hive.
  • To be able to run map reduce jobs using json parsing and generate dynamic partitions in parquet file format.
  • Simplifies your experience with Hadoop especially for non-technical/coding partners.

InfluxDB

  • Perfect handling telemetry data.
  • Low latency, near real time.
  • SQL-like language makes it easier to query.

Cons

Apache Hive

  • Use Hive for analytical work loads. Write once and read many scenarios. Do not prefer updates and deletes.
  • Behind scenes Hive creates map reduce jobs. Hive performance is slow compared to Apache Spark.
  • Map reduce writes the intermediate outputs to dial whereas Spark operates in in-memory and uses DAG.

InfluxDB

  • GUI based administrator console

Since I do not know the second data warehouse solution that integrate with HDFS as well as Hive.

InfluxDB is a near perfect product for time series database engines. The relatively small list of cons are heavily outweighed by it's ability to just work and be a very flexible and powerful database engine. The community and support provided by the corporation are the only areas I have little experience.

Thanks to its high usability Apache Hive enables users to craft extensive queries really efficiently and at the same time to how to hold response times very low. HiveQL simplicity makes it super easy to manage large datasets, what was almost an impossible task before introduction of Apache Hive data warehousing platform in our company.

Hive also has a community platform of its own just like other Hadoop frameworks. Most of the queries/problems are resolved in the community itself. We can just post our problems or get in touch with a specific user and get the issue resolved. Otherwise there is always the product support team for any resolution.

We have worked with the InfluxDB support team a few times so far and it has been positive. Issues submitted are worked on promptly and we have good feedback.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Hive

Besides Hive, I have used Google BigQuery, which is costly but have very high computation speed.Amazon Redshift is the another product, I used in my recent organisation.Both Redshift and BigQuery are managed solution whereas Hive needs to be managed
Manjeet Singh | TrustRadius Reviewer

InfluxDB

To be honest, I didn't look at alternatives since InfluxDB performs very well if you can oversee the lack of security and HA features. But for all challenges, there is an easy solution which brings you forward (e.g. read load balancing can be achieved by using a common HTTPS load balancer).

Return on Investment

Apache Hive

  • It exposes the distributed calculation world (Hadoop) to the users but doesn't require the user to have the in-depth understanding of boilerplate details, it reduces the time of learning and let the data analyst can focus their efforts on the core business.

InfluxDB

  • Provided us a time series DB.
  • With the SQL-like language, it is very easy to learn.
  • Empowered us to keep track of our events.
