This talk was held at the 12th meeting on July 22 2014 by Romeo Kienzler.
After giving a short contextual overview about SQL for Hadoop projects in the Ecosystem (Hive, Impala, Presto, Cascading Lingual, ...) we will hear about the latest SQL for Hadoop features in Big SQL. Big SQL delivers some exciting capabilities including low latency and high performance queries while maintaining backwards compatibility to Hive and HCatalog. This is achieved by a optimizer and dedicated execution framework which will be covered in detail. Finally as demo of Big SQL v3.0 on a cluster in Silicon Valley Lab (SVL) will be shown.
