Apache Drill vs Postico: What are the differences?

Developers describe Apache Drill as "Schema-Free SQL Query Engine for Hadoop and NoSQL". Apache Drill is a distributed MPP query layer that supports SQL and alternative query languages against NoSQL and Hadoop data storage systems. It was inspired in part by Google's Dremel. On the other hand, Postico is detailed as "A modern PostgreSQL client for OS X". Postico provides an easy to use interface, making Postgres more accessible for newcomers and specialists alike. Postico will look familiar to anyone who has used a Mac before. Just connect to a database and begin working with tables and views. Start with the basics and learn about advanced features of PostgreSQL as you go along.

Apache Drill and Postico can be primarily classified as "Database" tools.

Some of the features offered by Apache Drill are:

  • Low-latency SQL queries
  • Dynamic queries on self-describing data in files (such as JSON, Parquet, text) and MapR-DB/HBase tables, without requiring metadata definitions in the Hive metastore.
  • ANSI SQL

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

  • Peek inside your database. Then edit as needed.
  • Design a database with a sound structure.
  • Query, Enquire, Investigate.

"NoSQL and Hadoop" is the primary reason why developers consider Apache Drill over the competitors, whereas "Very clean, respectable interface" was stated as the key factor in picking Postico.
