Subject Phoenix and Cloudera
Date Fri, 18 Jul 2014 15:40:01 GMT
Phoenix's performance is great. The JDBC driver is very convenient for programming and allows
use of existing tools such as DB Visualizer. However, since Phoenix is not a component of
the Cloudera distribution of Hadoop (CDH), there is always the risk that the latest version
of CDH will break Phoenix. Such is the case with CDH 5.0, which contains HBase 0.96 in contrast
to Phoenix's dependency on HBase 0.98. Therefore it is safer to use a technology that is included
in CDH. An organization that is using CDH and upgrades CDH as the new CDH versions come out
always runs the risk that Phoenix is out of sync and broken. How would one counter this argument?
