Amazon Redshift vs HBase: What are the differences?

Amazon Redshift: Fast, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service. Redshift makes it simple and cost-effective to efficiently analyze all your data using your existing business intelligence tools. It is optimized for datasets ranging from a few hundred gigabytes to a petabyte or more and costs less than $1,000 per terabyte per year, a tenth the cost of most traditional data warehousing solutions; HBase: The Hadoop database, a distributed, scalable, big data store. Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store modeled after Google' Bigtable: A Distributed Storage System for Structured Data by Chang et al. Just as Bigtable leverages the distributed data storage provided by the Google File System, HBase provides Bigtable-like capabilities on top of Apache Hadoop.

Amazon Redshift belongs to "Big Data as a Service" category of the tech stack, while HBase can be primarily classified under "Databases".

"Data Warehousing" is the top reason why over 27 developers like Amazon Redshift, while over 7 developers mention "Performance" as the leading cause for choosing HBase.

HBase is an open source tool with 2.87K GitHub stars and 1.98K GitHub forks. Here's a link to HBase's open source repository on GitHub.

Lyft, PedidosYa, and Zapier are some of the popular companies that use Amazon Redshift, whereas HBase is used by SendGrid, HubSpot, and hike. Amazon Redshift has a broader approval, being mentioned in 267 company stacks & 63 developers stacks; compared to HBase, which is listed in 54 company stacks and 18 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Amazon Redshift and HBase?
      Google BigQuery
      Run super-fast, SQL-like queries against terabytes of data in seconds, using the processing power of Google's infrastructure. Load data with ease. Bulk load your data using Google Cloud Storage or stream it in. Easy access. Access BigQuery by using a browser tool, a command-line tool, or by making calls to the BigQuery REST API with client libraries such as Java, PHP or Python.
      Amazon Athena
      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.
      Amazon DynamoDB
      With it , you can offload the administrative burden of operating and scaling a highly available distributed database cluster, while paying a low price for only what you use.
      Amazon Redshift Spectrum
      With Redshift Spectrum, you can extend the analytic power of Amazon Redshift beyond data stored on local disks in your data warehouse to query vast amounts of unstructured data in your Amazon S3 “data lake” -- without having to load or transform any data.
      Hadoop
      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.

      The final output is inserted into HBase to serve the experiment dashboard. We also load the output data to Redshift for ad-hoc analysis. For real-time experiment data processing, we use Storm to tail Kafka and process data in real-time and insert metrics into MySQL, so we could identify group allocation problems and send out real-time alerts and metrics.
