Cloudera Impala: The Open Source, Distributed SQL Query Engine for Big Data. The Cloudera Impala project is pioneering the next generation of Hadoop capabilities: the convergence of fast SQL queries with the capacity, scalability, and flexibility of a Apache Hadoop cluster. With Impala, the Hadoop ecosystem now has an open-source codebase that helps users query data stored in Hadoop-based enterprise data hubs in real time, using familiar SQL syntax.
This talk will begin with an overview of the challenges organizations face as they collect and process more data than ever before, followed by an overview of Impala from the user's perspective and a dive into Impala's architecture. It concludes with stories of how Cloudera's customers are using Impala and the benefits they see.
