Share Article

Technology industry veteran to share how enterprises can get closer to the “Nirvana” of OLTP and OLAP on Hadoop by reviewing four leading technologies.

Splice Machine, provider of The Hadoop RDBMS, today announced that its co-founder and CEO, Monte Zweben, will be speaking at the NoSQL Now! 2015 conference & expo. In addition, Splice Machine will be exhibiting at the conference at booth 207.

The session, titled, “On the Path to Nirvana: Supporting OLTP and OLAP on Hadoop,” will take place Tuesday, August 18th, from 3:00pm – 3:45pm PST.

Session Summary
Hadoop, Hive and HBase all laid the groundwork for a scalable storage system to power applications and analytics. This talk at NoSQL Now! 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.
