Operational analytic data stores are a new emerging class of databases that merges ideas of logsearch systems (Elastic, Splunk, etc) and traditional analytic databases (Vertica, Teradata, etc). Popular projects in this class include Apache Druid (incubating), Scuba (from Facebook), Clickhouse (from Yandex), Pinot (from LI), Palo (from Baidu), and more. We will discuss the motivation behind these databases, and discuss in the detail the history, architecture, and future of Druid.
