Presto -> SQL engines for HDFS ?
Hi there,

the appearance of Presto stimulates a thought that a list and overview of engines of this sort would be jolly useful for general understanding and management of FUD in the enterprise....

I think that these engines are purposed for responsiveness for queries that can be written to generate relatively little interconnect traffic on a cluster.

I know of :

Drill (doh)
Gryphon (uses H-BASE?)
BlinkDB (slightly different, uses bootstrapping for aggregates)

I believe that Stinger should be thought of as something else - optimisations of an engine purposed for large scale queries.

Is this view close to correct?

Can anyone elucidate on the statements about Impala doing record materialisation where as other engines do vectorization? Is vectorization query rewriting for parallelism?

How do the folk in the Drill project see the plethora of efforts? Does anyone have a view as to why there are so many engines appearing?
