Amazon RedShift vs Hadoop vs Hive

Usually I use a separate blog to post any computer related information but lately I have been wanting to collaborate all my interests in one blog. So here it goes…

Found some good info on 3 technologies I have been checking out: Amazon RedShift, Hadoop and Hive.

Hadoop is a framework that for processing large data sets across multiple computers. It uses MapReduce approach and HDFS (distributed file system).

Hive is a warehouse built on top of HDFS and MapReduce, that provides SQL-like query engine for parsing and converting queries into MapReduce jobs.

AWS Redshift is a data warehouse built on top of a proprietary technology originally developed by ParAccel that has nothing to do with Hadoop and does not use MapReduce approach. Mostly used for real-time analytics
