Jim Scott, CHUG co-founder and Director, Enterprise Strategy and Architecture for MapR presents "Using Apache Drill". This presentation was given on August 13th, 2014 at the Nokia office in Chicago, IL.
Jim has held positions running Operations, Engineering, Architecture and QA teams. He has worked in the Consumer Packaged Goods, Digital Advertising, Digital Mapping, Chemical and Pharmaceutical industries. His work with high-throughput computing at Dow Chemical was a precursor to more standardized big data concepts like Hadoop.
Apache Drill brings the power of standard ANSI:SQL 2003 to your desktop and your clusters. It is like AWK for Hadoop. Drill supports querying schemaless systems like HBase, Cassandra and MongoDB. Use standard JDBC and ODBC APIs to use Drill from your custom applications. Leveraging an efficient columnar storage format, an optimistic execution engine and a cache-conscious memory layout, Apache Drill is blazing fast. Coordination, query planning, optimization, scheduling, and execution are all distributed throughout nodes in a system to maximize parallelization. This presentation contains live demonstrations.
