Benchmark comparing Hive, Presto, Impala, and InfiniDB
Just wanted to let you know InfiniDB sponsored an independent benchmark executed by Radiant Advisors that compares Hive, Impala, Presto, and InfiniDB. The report is available for download (with registration) at http://www.infinidb.co/blog/open-source-sql-hadoop-query-engines-benchmark. There is a webinar on April 23rd to review the full details, registration available via the same link.
The Presto technology was runner-up in syntax support and likely has advantages at extreme scale based on it's pedigree.
A quick summary
InfiniDB supported syntax for all 10 queries, with queries running between 1.28 and 17.62 seconds.
Presto supported syntax for 9 of 10 queries, with queries running between 18.89 and 506.84 seconds.
Impala supported syntax for 7 of 10 queries, with queries running between 3.1 and 69.38 seconds.
Hive 0.11 supported syntax for 7/10 queries, with queries running between 102.59 and 277.18 seconds.
Hive 0.12 supported syntax for 7/10 queries, with queries running between 91.39 and 325.68 seconds.
Note that 3 of the 7 queries supported with Hive did not complete due to resource issues.
