Amazon Athena vs EventQL: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon Athena as "Query S3 Using SQL". Amazon Athena is an interactive query service that makes it easy to analyze data in Amazon S3 using standard SQL. Athena is serverless, so there is no infrastructure to manage, and you pay only for the queries that you run. On the other hand, EventQL is detailed as "The database for large-scale event analytics". EventQL is a distributed, column-oriented database built for large-scale event collection and analytics. It runs super-fast SQL and MapReduce queries.
Amazon Athena and EventQL belong to "Big Data Tools" category of the tech stack.
"Use SQL to analyze CSV files" is the primary reason why developers consider Amazon Athena over the competitors, whereas "23" was stated as the key factor in picking EventQL.
EventQL is an open source tool with 1.02K GitHub stars and 91 GitHub forks. Here's a link to EventQL's open source repository on GitHub.
