Amazon RDS for Aurora vs Hadoop: What are the differences?

Amazon RDS for Aurora: MySQL and PostgreSQL compatible relational database with several times better performance. Amazon Aurora is a MySQL-compatible, relational database engine that combines the speed and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. Amazon Aurora provides up to five times better performance than MySQL at a price point one tenth that of a commercial database while delivering similar performance and availability; Hadoop: Open-source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing. The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage.

Amazon RDS for Aurora can be classified as a tool in the "SQL Database as a Service" category, while Hadoop is grouped under "Databases".

"MySQL compatibility " is the top reason why over 11 developers like Amazon RDS for Aurora, while over 34 developers mention "Great ecosystem" as the leading cause for choosing Hadoop.

Hadoop is an open source tool with 9.27K GitHub stars and 5.78K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Hadoop's open source repository on GitHub.

    Amazon RDS
    Amazon RDS gives you access to the capabilities of a familiar MySQL, Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server database engine. This means that the code, applications, and tools you already use today with your existing databases can be used with Amazon RDS. Amazon RDS automatically patches the database software and backs up your database, storing the backups for a user-defined retention period and enabling point-in-time recovery. You benefit from the flexibility of being able to scale the compute resources or storage capacity associated with your Database Instance (DB Instance) via a single API call.
    Google Cloud SQL
    MySQL databases deployed in the cloud without a fuss. Google Cloud Platform provides you with powerful databases that run fast, don’t run out of space and give your application the redundant, reliable storage it needs.
    ClearDB
    ClearDB uses a combination of advanced replication techniques, advanced cluster technology, and layered web services to provide you with a MySQL database that is "smarter" than usual.
    Azure Database for MySQL
    Azure Database for MySQL provides a managed database service for app development and deployment that allows you to stand up a MySQL database in minutes and scale on the fly – on the cloud you trust most.
    DigitalOcean Managed Databases
    Build apps and store data in minutes with easy access to one or more databases and sleep better knowing your data is backed up and optimized.

    How developers use Amazon RDS for Aurora and Hadoop
    Avatar of Pinterest
    Pinterest uses HadoopHadoop

    The MapReduce workflow starts to process experiment data nightly when data of the previous day is copied over from Kafka. At this time, all the raw log requests are transformed into meaningful experiment results and in-depth analysis. To populate experiment data for the dashboard, we have around 50 jobs running to do all the calculations and transforms of data.

    in 2009 we open sourced mrjob, which allows any engineer to write a MapReduce job without contending for resources. We’re only limited by the amount of machines in an Amazon data center (which is an issue we’ve rarely encountered).
