Cloudera Impala: Real-time queries with Apache Hadoop

Speaker: Ricky Saltzer, Cloudera

Date: January 29, 6:30PM

Location: Bronto Software, Durham, NC


Join us for this technical deep dive about Cloudera Impala, the project that makes scalable parallel databse technology available to the Hadoop community for the first time. Impala is an open-sourced code base that allows users to issue low-latency queries to data stored in HDFS and Apache HBase using familiar SQL operators.


Presenter Ricky Saltzer, a tools developer and Impala contributor for Cloudera, will begin with an overview of Impala from the user's perspective, followed by an overview of Impala's architecture and implementation, and will conclude with a comparison of Impala with Apache Hive, commercial MapReduce alternatives and traditional data warehouse infrastructure.
