Webinar: Big SQL Analytics – Cloudera Using Impala

On October 22, Brett Neuman, Manager Consultant at StatSlice Systems, presented a webinar on Cloudera using Impala as part of our series on Big SQL Analytics. This webinar was recorded and is available below. This webinar is the third video in our series on Big SQL Analytics, and it covers the results of our Cloudera Impala investigation. According to Cloudera, “Impala provides real-time, ad hoc query capabilities to Apache Hadoop. Impala raises the bar for query performace while retaining a familiar user experience. With Impala, you can query data, whether stored in HDFS or Apache HBase – including SELECT, JOIN and aggregate functions – in real time.”

In this webinar, Brett walks you through the proof of concept environment which we set up to demonstrate the capabilities of Impala. He also compares our query results with those from our previous webinar on Amazon Redshift to give a good idea of how these technologies stack up with each other.
