CDAP vs Apache Flink: What are the differences?

CDAP: Open source virtualization platform for Hadoop data and apps. Cask Data Application Platform (CDAP) is an open source application development platform for the Hadoop ecosystem that provides developers with data and application virtualization to accelerate application development, address a broader range of real-time and batch use cases, and deploy applications into production while satisfying enterprise requirements; Apache Flink: Fast and reliable large-scale data processing engine. Apache Flink is an open source system for fast and versatile data analytics in clusters. Flink supports batch and streaming analytics, in one system. Analytical programs can be written in concise and elegant APIs in Java and Scala.

CDAP and Apache Flink can be categorized as "Big Data" tools.

Some of the features offered by CDAP are:

  • Streams for data ingestion
  • Reusable libraries for common Big Data access patterns
  • Data available to multiple applications and different paradigms

On the other hand, Apache Flink provides the following key features:

  • Hybrid batch/streaming runtime that supports batch processing and data streaming programs.
  • Custom memory management to guarantee efficient, adaptive, and highly robust switching between in-memory and data processing out-of-core algorithms.
  • Flexible and expressive windowing semantics for data stream programs

CDAP and Apache Flink are both open source tools. It seems that Apache Flink with 9.35K GitHub stars and 5K forks on GitHub has more adoption than CDAP with 346 GitHub stars and 178 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to CDAP and Apache Flink?
        Apache Spark
        Spark is a fast and general processing engine compatible with Hadoop data. It can run in Hadoop clusters through YARN or Spark's standalone mode, and it can process data in HDFS, HBase, Cassandra, Hive, and any Hadoop InputFormat. It is designed to perform both batch processing (similar to MapReduce) and new workloads like streaming, interactive queries, and machine learning.
        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.
        Presto
        Presto is an open source distributed SQL query engine for running interactive analytic queries against data sources of all sizes ranging from gigabytes to petabytes.
        Apache Hive
        Hive facilitates reading, writing, and managing large datasets residing in distributed storage using SQL. Structure can be projected onto data already in storage.
        Druid
        Druid is a distributed, column-oriented, real-time analytics data store that is commonly used to power exploratory dashboards in multi-tenant environments. Druid excels as a data warehousing solution for fast aggregate queries on petabyte sized data sets. Druid supports a variety of flexible filters, exact calculations, approximate algorithms, and other useful calculations.
