Our old relational data warehousing solution, Hive, was
not performant enough for us to generate product
recommendations in SQL in our configuration.
This right here describes the common theme across all “Redshift is so much faster and cheaper than Hive”: expect a relational data warehouse from a Hadoop and Hive. You tell me if that’s the right expectation.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
