Impala: Real-Time Queries in Hadoop, For Real

We will get the inside scoop on Impala from Alan Choi, a parallel SQL engine that runs natively on Hadoop storage.

The Cloudera Impala project is for the first time making scalable
parallel database technology, which is the underpinning of Google's
Dremel as well as that of commercial analytic DBMSs, available to the
Hadoop community. With Impala, the Hadoop community now has an
open-sourced codebase that allows users to issue low-latency queries
to data stored in HDFS and Apache HBase using familiar SQL operators.

This talk will start out with an overview of Impala from the user's
perspective, followed by a presentation 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.

Alan Choi is a Software Engineer at Cloudera, which he joined to work on the Impala project. Prior to Cloudera, Alan worked at Greenplum on Greenplum-Hadoop integration. Before that, Alan worked extensively on PL/SQL and SQL at Oracle.
