We’re working on a Druid-based prototype, and right know we’ve solved all of our problems (except one, but this is for another post). But our prototype is only a toy yet, and we have to deploy a huge logs analysis system to offer good reporting performance & flexibility.
- We have recently discovered the Imply Druid distribution, and we have a lot of doubts about what are its advantages & disadvantages over the vanilla “distro”.
- We also have doubts about what are de advantages and disadvantages of using HDFS or S3 for the Druid’s deep storage layer.
I have to add that I’m far new at my company and I don’t have any power over money-related decisions, but I’m also interested on how Imply could help us to deploy a ready-for-production infrastructure and how much costs this support, then we can guess how to balance the inner effort vs external support in an optimal way.
Thank you for your time.
