The ODPS SQL adopts a syntax similar to that of SQL, and is applicable to a distributed scenario, where the amount of data is massive (TB-level) with low real-time requirement. It is an OLAP application oriented to throughput. ODPS SQL is recommended if a business needs to handle thousands or tens of thousands of transactions because it takes a long time to complete the process from preparation to submission of a job.
