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.

SAP HANA Cloud

One of the advantages of SAP HANA Cloud is that it can easily be used to extend your current on-premise HANA system. We haven't tested it yet in a large scale project for instance as the database for an S/4 HANA implementation. This requires further investigation at this time.

Pros

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.

SAP HANA Cloud

  • It's the way to go for the foreseeable future if SAP HANA is your platform of choice
  • We like the features currently available, but are anxiously awaiting for more on-prem features to make it over to the offering
  • Multi-Cloud deployment options is a huge benefit

Cons

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.

SAP HANA Cloud

  • Remote source connections through SDA to other databases like SQL Server and Oracle are no longer possible. The only way to go would be through SDI, which isn't as optimized and might require additional license costs.
  • If you currently use features like dynamic tiering or R server integration, you need to really look if this is the offering for you at this point in time.
  • The flexibility of downsizing, which is a big advantage of working in the cloud, is at this moment not available (yet).

Usability has been solid sofar, as well as the ease of setting up the SAP HANA Cloud instance. If you are a current user of HANA on-prem, you should feel straight at home.

As we haven't used the support for SAP HANA Cloud yet, we can't really comment on this. The documentation however has helped us a lot.

Alternatives Considered

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.

SAP HANA Cloud

We have evaluated other offerings like SAP HEC and HANA as a service in the SAP Cloud Platform and we see that SAP HANA Cloud is the main focus of SAP's vision for the future. This is the main argument why we're leaning towards using this offering. Especially the quarterly releases of updates and new features is a positive criterium for us.

Return on Investment

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.

SAP HANA Cloud

  • As this is a primary evaluation of the SAP HANA Cloud, I can't make any comments on the ROI of using this offering
