Apache Drill vs Sequel Pro: 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, Sequel Pro is detailed as "MySQL database management for Mac OS X". Sequel Pro is a fast, easy-to-use Mac database management application for working with MySQL databases.
Apache Drill and Sequel Pro can be categorized 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, Sequel Pro provides the following key features:
- Quickly filter and paginate table content
- Fast, threaded UI
- Document based connections — Save your connection and share it
"NoSQL and Hadoop" is the top reason why over 2 developers like Apache Drill, while over 21 developers mention "Free" as the leading cause for choosing Sequel Pro.
