Ted Dunning from MapR speaks on Apache Drill. This is a new open source Apache Incubator project for interactive analysis of large-scale datasets, inspired by Google's Dremel. It enables users to query terabytes of data in seconds. Apache Drill supports a broad range of data formats, including Protocol Buffers, Avro and JSON, and leverages Hadoop and HBase as data sources. Drill's primary query language, DrQL, is compatible with Google BigQuery. In this talk we provide an overview of the Drill project, including its design goals and architecture. This presentation was given on September 19th, 2012 at the Nokia office in Chicago, IL.
Want to hear about Impala? Marcel Kornacker 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. This presentation was given on December 13th, 2012 at the offices of 1871 in the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, IL.
