Hadoop, Hive and HBase all laid the groundwork for a scalable storage system to power applications and analytics. This talk compares and contrasts four architectures that bring us closer to Hadoop “Nirvana” where you have the operational/OLTP behavior of HBase with the SQL support necessary for OLAP.

The architectures include:

  • A traditional Hadoop/Hive/HBase environment
  • Apache Spark operating on Apache HBase
  • Apache Phoenix, a “SQL layer on HBase”
  • Splice Machine, a Hadoop RDBMS built on Apache Derby, Apache HBase, and Apache Spark
These systems will be compared along performance metrics for both OLTP and OLAP benchmarks. Some will not be able to even compute the benchmarks and some will be orders of magnitudes faster. We will provide guidelines on when to use which architecture based on use cases and the desired OLTP and OLAP performance criteria.

Monte Zweben is the CEO and co-founder of Splice Machine, provider of The Hadoop RDBMS.
