This is how Yaniv Mor’s “Hadoop vs. Redshift” ends:
We have a tie! Huh!? Didn’t Hadoop win most of the rounds? Yes, it did, but
Big Data’s superheroes are better off working together as a team rather than
fighting. Turn on the Hadoop-Signal when you need relatively cheap data
storage, batch processing of petabytes, or processing data in non-relational
formats. Call out to red-caped Redshift for analytics, fast performance for
terabytes, and an easier transition for your PostgreSQL team. As Airbnb
concluded in their benchmark: “We don’t think Redshift is a replacement of
the Hadoop family due to its limitations, but rather it is a very good
complement to Hadoop for interactive analytics”. We Agree.
I’m wondering why wasting 1337 words for an apple-to-oranges comparison.
