Amazon EMR vs Stitch: What are the differences?

What is Amazon EMR? Distribute your data and processing across a Amazon EC2 instances using Hadoop. Amazon EMR is used in a variety of applications, including log analysis, web indexing, data warehousing, machine learning, financial analysis, scientific simulation, and bioinformatics. Customers launch millions of Amazon EMR clusters every year.

What is Stitch? All your data. In your data warehouse. In minutes. Stitch is a simple, powerful ETL service built for software developers. Stitch evolved out of RJMetrics, a widely used business intelligence platform. When RJMetrics was acquired by Magento in 2016, Stitch was launched as its own company.

Amazon EMR and Stitch belong to "Big Data as a Service" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Amazon EMR are:

  • Elastic- Amazon EMR enables you to quickly and easily provision as much capacity as you need and add or remove capacity at any time. Deploy multiple clusters or resize a running cluster
  • Low Cost- Amazon EMR is designed to reduce the cost of processing large amounts of data. Some of the features that make it low cost include low hourly pricing, Amazon EC2 Spot integration, Amazon EC2 Reserved Instance integration, elasticity, and Amazon S3 integration.
  • Flexible Data Stores- With Amazon EMR, you can leverage multiple data stores, including Amazon S3, the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), and Amazon DynamoDB.

On the other hand, Stitch provides the following key features:

  • Connect to your ecosystem of data sources - UI allows you to configure your data pipeline in a way that balances data freshness with cost and production database load
  • Replication frequency - Choose full or incremental loads, and determine how often you want them to run - from every minute, to once every 24 hours
  • Data selection - Configure exactly what data gets replicated by selecting the tables, fields, collections, and endpoints you want in your warehouse

"On demand processing power" is the top reason why over 13 developers like Amazon EMR, while over 5 developers mention "3 minutes to set up" as the leading cause for choosing Stitch.

According to the StackShare community, Amazon EMR has a broader approval, being mentioned in 95 company stacks & 18 developers stacks; compared to Stitch, which is listed in 22 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.
