Processing frameworks for Hadoop

Hadoop has become the de-facto platform for storing and processing large amounts of data and has found widespread applications. In the Hadoop ecosystem, you can store your data in one of the storage managers (for example, HDFS, HBase, Solr, etc.) and then use a processing framework to process the stored data. Hadoop first shipped with only one processing framework: MapReduce. Today, there are many other open source tools in the Hadoop ecosystem that can be used to process data in Hadoop; a few common tools include the following Apache projects: Hive, Pig, Spark, Cascading, Crunch, Tez, and Drill, along with Impala and Presto. Some of these frameworks are built on top of each other. For example, you can write queries in Hive that can run on MapReduce or Tez. Another example currently under development is the ability to run Hive queries on Spark

Hadoop: The ultimate list of frameworks

Categories of processing frameworks

One can broadly classify processing frameworks in Hadoop into the following six categories:

General-purpose processing frameworks

These frameworks allow users to process data in Hadoop using a low-level API. Although these are all batch frameworks, they follow different programming models. Examples include MapReduce and Spark.

Machine learning frameworks

These frameworks enable machine learning analysis on Hadoop data. These can also be built on top of a general-purpose framework, such as MLlib (on Spark), or as a stand-alone, special-purpose framework, such as Oryx.

Graph processing frameworks

These frameworks enable graph processing capabilities on Hadoop. They can be built on top of a general-purpose framework, such as Giraph, or as a stand-alone, special-purpose framework, such as GraphLab.

Abstraction frameworks

These frameworks allow users to process data using a higher level abstraction. These can be API-based — for example, Crunch and Cascading, or based on a custom DSL, such as Pig. These are typically built on top of a general-purpose processing framework.

SQL frameworks

These frameworks enable querying data in Hadoop using SQL. These can be built on top of a general-purpose framework, such as Hive, or as a stand-alone, special-purpose framework, such as Impala. Technically, SQL frameworks can be considered abstraction frameworks. However, given their high demand and slew of options available in this category, it makes sense to classify SQL frameworks as their own category.

Real-time/streaming frameworks

These frameworks provide near real-time processing (several hundred milliseconds to few seconds latency) for data in the Hadoop ecosystem. They can be built on top of a generic framework, such as Spark Streaming (on Spark), or as a stand-alone, special-purpose framework, such as Storm.
