Spark SQL vs. Apache Drill

Spark SQL -
The Spark SQL is used for real-time, in-memory and parallelized SQL-on-Hadoop engine.
The Spark SQL is not a general purpose SQL layer and it’s used to allow us to do several advanced analytics with data.

The Spark SQL supports only a subset of SQL functionality and users have to write code in Java, Python and so on to execute a query.

Great Features of Spark SQL -
ü  Spark SQL provides security through encryption using SSL for HTTP protocols.
ü  The Spark SQL supports lots of features to analysis the large scale of data.
ü  The Spark SQL supports lots of data types for machine learning.
ü  In the Spark SQL, you can easily to write data pipelines.
ü  In the Spark SQL, easy to add optimization rules, data types and data source by using the Scala programming language

When To Use Spark SQL?
Spark SQL is the best SQL-on-Hadoop tool and best used of Spark SQL is fetch data for diverse machine learning tasks.

Disadvantage of Spark SQL -
The Spark SQL is lacks advanced security features.

Apache Drill -
Apache Drill is a Schema-free SQL Query Engine for Hadoop, NoSQL and Cloud Storage and it allows us to explore, visualize and query different datasets without having to fix to a schema using ETL and so on.

Apache Drill is also Analyse the multi-structured and nested data in non-relational data stores directly without restricting any data.

Apache Drill is the first distributed SQL query engine and it contains the schema free JSON model and its looks like -
ü  Elastic Search
ü  MongoDB
ü  NoSQL database
ü  And SO on

The Apache Drill is very useful for those professionals that already working with SQL databases and BI tools like Pentaho, Tableau, and Qlikview.

Also Apache Drill supports to -
ü  RESTful,
ü  ANSI SQL and
ü  JDBC/ODBC drivers

Great Features of Apache Drill
The following features are -
ü  Schema-free JSON document model similar to MongoDB and Elastic search
ü  Code reusability
ü  Easy to use and developer friendly
ü  High performance Java based API
ü  Memory management system
ü  Industry-standard API like ANSI SQL, ODBC/JDBC, RESTful APIs
ü  How does Drill achieve performance?
ü  Distributed query optimization and execution
ü  Columnar Execution
ü  Optimistic Execution
ü  Pipelined Execution
ü  Runtime compilation and code generation
ü  Vectorization

What Datastores does Drill support?
Drill’s main focused on non-relational data stores, including Hadoop, NoSQL and cloud storage.
The following datastores are -
ü  NoSQL - HBase and MongoDB
ü  Cloud Storage - Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Azure Blog Storage and Swift
ü  Hadoop - MapR, CDH and Amazon EMR

What Similarities between Spark SQL and Apache Drill?
ü  Both the Apache Drill and Spark SQL are open source
ü  Do not require a Hadoop cluster to get started
ü  Both the SQL-on-Hadoop tools can easily be run inside a VM.
ü  Both the Apache Drill and Spark SQL are supports multiple data formats- JSON, Parquet, MongoDB, Avro, MySQL and so on.

What Are the Main Differences between Spark SQL and Apache Drill?
The Spark SQL only supports a subset of SQL but Apache Drill supports ANSI SQL.

Querying data in Spark SQL with help of languages like Java, Scala or Python but Apache Drill querying data with helps of MySQL or Oracle.

Is Spark SQL similar to Drill?

How does Drill support queries on self-describing data?
ü  JSON data model
ü  On-the-fly schema discovery

Do I need to load data into Drill to start querying it?

No! The Drill can query data in-situ.

React | Encryption and Decryption Data/Text using CryptoJs

To encrypt and decrypt data, simply use encrypt () and decrypt () function from an instance of crypto-js. Node.js (Install) Requirements: 1.       Node.js 2.       npm (Node.js package manager) 3.       npm install crypto-js npm   install   crypto - js Usage - Step 1 - Import var   CryptoJS  =  require ( "crypto-js" ); Step 2 - Encrypt    // Encrypt    var   ciphertext  =  CryptoJS . AES . encrypt ( JSON . stringify ( data ),  'my-secret-key@123' ). toString (); Step 3 -Decrypt    // Decrypt    var   bytes  =  CryptoJS . AES . decrypt ( ciphertext ,  'my-secret-key@123' );    var   decryptedData  =  JSON . parse ( bytes . toString ( CryptoJS . enc . Utf8 )); As an Example,   import   React   from   'react' ; import   './App.css' ; //Including all libraries, for access to extra methods. var   CryptoJS  =  require ( "crypto-js" ); function   App () {    var   data
