No sql now2011_review_of_adhoc_architectures

  1. 1. BI/Analytics for NoSQL: Review of Architectures
  2. 2. What we'll answer in 50 minutes • Who is this guy? • How do I enable AdHoc, self service reporting on NoSQL? • How do I improve the performance of dashboards on top of NoSQL? • How do I integrate NoSQL data with my other data not inside NoSQL? • How do I enable, easy to build simple reports but also preserve the ability for rich NoSQL queries?
  3. 3. Nicholas Goodman • Open Source BI thought leader – 50+ Open Source BI customer projects – Blogger, whitepapers, etc • Entrepreneur – DynamoBI Corporation – Bayon Technologies, Inc. • Data Geek, hacker, tinkerer, committer GOAL: Share perspectives, research, opinions. DISCLAIMER: Your Mileage ...
  4. 4. How do we answer those Q's?
  5. 5. Promise of “Big Data” • NoSQL/Hadoop/MapReduce Systems – Keep more of it – Cost effective analysis – “Massive scale” data, now accessible to everyone (elastic) – Not just SQL queries, more complex analysis ACCOMPLISHED: WEB SCALE, MASSIVE NEVER BEFORE SEEN SCALE OF DATA STORAGE AND PROCESSING
  6. 6. Reality Check! • Petabytes? Y • Fast Queries? N • Cheap Storage? Y • Ad Hoc access? N • Raw Processing? Y • Accessibility to commodity BI tools? N • Rich Query Languages? Y • Flexible data structures? Y• Easy report authoring? N • Reliable, Fault Tolerant? Y• Levels of Aggregation? N • Integrated Data? N Big Data has solved the INFRASTRUCTURE of raw/core data storage but has provided less value to what BUSINESS users want for analytics.
  7. 7. Data Gaps too! • Code, Developers • Analysts w/ Excel, Dashboards • MR, Rich Graph/Access • Simple 2D (tables, charts) • Hierarchical, Unstructured • Filtering and easy analytics
  9. 9. Architectures • NoSQL reports • NoSQL thru and thru • NoSQL + MySQL • NoSQL as ETL Source • NoSQL programs in BI Tools • NoSQL via BI Database (SQL)
  10. 10. NoSQL reports • Pay Developer to build applications for reports Apps • 100% Richness of NoSQL • $$, developer driven process • Up to date, current • No commodity BI tools • Excellent performance on • Managing rollups/summaries large datasets • Schema-less = Harder! • Custom built, beautiful • Hard to integrate other reports/dashboards reporting information • Single system to manage
  11. 11. NoSQL thru and thru • Pay Developer to build FLEXIBLE applications for reports Indices Advanced Aggs Apps • All of NoSQL report • $$, developer driven process advantages • $$, app required for aggs • Managed aggregations, • No commodity BI tools rollups • Hard to integrate other • “Guided Adhoc” available reporting information inside application • Limited AdHoc (only • Higher performance for developer built dashboards/summaries combinations)
  12. 12. NoSQL + MySQL • Pay Developer to build FLEXIBLE applications for reports ETL App MySQL • Less IT $$ since developers • Data freshness (24 hrs old) aren't “building reports” • Once into MySQL no rich • Rich, NoSQL analysis left in NoSQL application use (M/R) place (ETL + NoSQL) • BI Tool can connect ONLY to • Easy, Ad Hoc reporting via data in MySQL, not NoSQL commodity BI tools • Aggregations still self • Easier to understand data for managed in MySQL self service reports
  13. 13. NoSQL as ETL Data Source • NoSQL treated like any other data source Informatica Teradata • Allows use of consolidated, • ETL Development Expense BI tool for AdHoc • Data Latency • Enables integrated • Loss of NoSQL language (combined) datasets for richness reporting • Traditional DW tools are $$ • Aggregations Often “managed” • Scaling issues with DW Database • Best of Breed tools
  14. 14. NoSQL programs in BI Tools • Write a program in BI tool that flattens data, output into report • Rich use of NoSQL native • Developer required to write language program ($$) • Direct, up to date access • Slow-er (aggs, summaries) • Access to 100% of dataset • Lacks integration with other • Leverage “guided” report datasets parameter pages • Still (usually) no AdHoc • Less expensive than apps access
  15. 15. NoSQL via BI Database (SQL) • Enable NoSQL data access via SQL (gasp!) Live Query Cached, 24hr data • Easy reports, easy (SQL) • Another system in between • Integration with other data • Still needs to be refreshed, • ETL is simple INSERT/MERGEs nightly • Live, up to date access • Not all capabilities for NoSQL richness available via SQL • High performance, cached data • AdHoc access to Live + Cached • Aggregations/Summaries
  16. 16. Mozilla: NoSQL thru and thru(DB) • Socorro Project: Crash reports, optionally sent to Mozilla •
  17. 17. X: NoSQL via SQL • Using “Splunk” (ie, a commercial NoSQL-eee data aggregator/etc) • Desire to use Tableau for advanced analytics/visualization
  18. 18. Meteor Solutions: NoSQL thru and thru • Using Cloudant BigCouch solution (SaaS) • High performance set of multi purpose indices on pre defined aggregations • Up to date aggregation/reports • Better fit for Social Media graph structures over relational DB • Custom built BI applications (dashboards/reports) providing a flexible guided view through data Advanced Apps
  19. 19. A,B,C: NoSQL + MySQL • Many Many companies (3 we've worked with) • All “web related” companies (semi structured, some, mostly volume) • Heavy lifting and storage, and “ETL/Data prepartion” inside Hadoop • Push summarized, aggregated data into MySQL for analysis by easy, dashboarding/BI Tools ETL App MySQL
