Databricks Unified Analytics Platform

Databricks has helped my teams write PySpark and Spark SQL jobs and test them out before formally integrating them in Spark jobs. Through Databricks we can create parquet and JSON output files. Datamodelers and scientists who are not very good with coding can get good insight into the data using the notebooks that can be developed by the engineers.

SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE), legacy

High-performance, high-concurrency transactions are well suited for ASE. ASE is lacking some features in my opinion such as history tables, however there are ways to implement them via workarounds or by using Replication Server. I do think the way the ASE parser and optimizer works are far superior to other products as it is a true cost-based optimizer and the order of the tables in the FROM clause does not really matter although a good SQL coder will place the tables in a meaningful order to make the SQL more readable. ASE is good for applications that require high availability and can be used for mission critical systems.

Cons

Databricks Unified Analytics Platform

  • The navigation through which one would create a workspace is a bit confusing at first. It takes a couple minutes to figure out how to create a folder and upload files since it is not the same as traditional file systems such as box.com
  • Also, when you create a table, if you forgot to copy the link where the table is stored, it is hard to relocate it. Most of the time I would have to delete the table and re-created.

  • Full database encryption - need to utilize external keys vs internal - for better separation of duties.
  • History Tables.

This has been very useful in my organization for shared notebooks, integrated data pipeline automation and data sources integrations. Integration with AWS is seamless. Non tech users can easily learn how to use Databricks. You can have your company LDAP connect to it for login based access controls to some extent

It does almost everything we need and for the things it doesn't do natively, we are still able to do using other features. For example, natively history tables weren't supported but we were able to create them using triggers.
