Apache Sqoop

Sqoop is great for sending data between a JDBC compliant database and a Hadoop environment. Sqoop is built for those who need a few simple CLI options to import a selection of database tables into Hadoop, do large dataset analysis that could not commonly be done with that database system due to resource constraints, then export the results back into that database (or another). Sqoop falls short when there needs to be some extra, customized processing between database extract, and Hadoop loading, in which case Apache Spark's JDBC utilities might be preferred

Cloudera Manager

It would be suited for customers who feel more comfortable with using a GUI. It is less appropriate for developers or engineers who are comfortable with command line

Pros

  • Provides generalized JDBC extensions to migrate data between most database systems
  • Generates Java classes upon reading database records for use in other code utilizing Hadoop's client libraries
  • Allows for both import and export features

  • Cloudera Manager has an easy to use web GUI. You can start and stop cluster and services. It will start and stop services in a cluster in the right order. You can monitor the cluster, services, and physical host hardware as well.
  • Cloudera Manager has an easy to use API that allows us to create scripts to automate deployment process.
  • Cloudera Manager has an option to add additional services that you could manage via the web GUI.

Cons

  • Sqoop2 development seems to have stalled. I have set it up outside of a Cloudera CDH installation, and I actually prefer it's "Sqoop Server" model better than just the CLI client version that is Sqoop1. This works especially well in a microservices environment, where there would be only one place to maintain the JDBC drivers to use for Sqoop.

  • Cloudera Manager needs to be more agile with integrating other applications, such as Accumulo 1.7, to their software.
  • Cloudera Manager can do a better job at explaining why a node fails to add to a cluster using their assistant.
  • Cloudera Manager should show graphs only when there is data, instead of showing just an empty box.

It meets all my customer's needs.

Alternatives Considered

  • Sqoop comes preinstalled on the major Hadoop vendor distributions as the recommended product to import data from relational databases. The ability to extend it with additional JDBC drivers makes it very flexible for the environment it is installed within.
  • Spark also has a useful JDBC reader, and can manipulate data in more ways than Sqoop, and also upload to many other systems than just Hadoop.
  • Kafka Connect JDBC is more for streaming database updates using tools such as Oracle GoldenGate or Debezium.
  • Streamsets and Apache NiFi both provide a more "flow based programming" approach to graphically laying out connectors between various systems, including JDBC and Hadoop.

I have not used any competitors, such as Hortonworks, because Cloudera Manager just works and meets all my customer's needs. I only have deployed Hadoop using command line, which is not easy to use and manage.

Return on Investment

  • When combined with Cloudera's HUE, it can enable non-technical users to easily import relational data into Hadoop.
  • Being able to manipulate large datasets in Hadoop, and them load them into a type of "materialized view" in an external database system has yielded great insights into the Hadoop datalake without continuously running large batch jobs.
  • Sqoop isn't very user-friendly for those uncomfortable with a CLI.

  • Cloudera Manager has a positive impact because our users have the windows mentality. They are more comfortable with using an easy to use GUI.
  • We save so much time and effort by having an automated scripted to deploy our environment. It takes at the most 15 minutes to run a one line script to build zookeepers, hadoop, and accumulo database. Run it, come back 15 minutes later, and its done.
  • Due to ease of deployment, our developers and system administrators are happy that they can quickly build and test their application.
