19:10 Apache Drill, a query engine for heterogeneous, large-scale datasets
Apache Drill is a distributed system for the interactive, ad-hoc analysis of large-scale datasets, inspired by Google’s Dremel technology. It is designed to scale to thousands of servers and able to process Petabytes of data in seconds, enabling SQL-on-Hadoop and supporting a variety of data sources. Since its inception a year ago, Apache Drill has gained widespread interest in the community, attracting hundreds of people.We will discuss how Apache Drill enables interactive, ad-hoc query at scale,review the system architecture and walk through use case. We then focus on Apache Drill's unique support for a variety of back-ends (HDFS, HBase, MySQL, MongoDB, CouchDB, etc.), its extensibility points, and show a demo of the system.
