Learn how improve Apache HBase usability by creating a custom formatter for viewing binary data types in the HBase shell.
Cloudera customers are looking to store complex data types in Apache HBase to provide fast retrieval of complex information such as banking transactions, web analytics records, and related metadata associated with those records. Serialization formats such as Apache Avro, Thrift, and Protocol Buffers greatly assist in meeting this goal,
Impala is designed to deliver insight on data in Apache Hadoop in real time. As data often lands in Hadoop continuously in certain use cases (such as time-series analysis, real-time fraud detection, real-time risk detection, and so on), it’s desirable for Impala to query this new “fast” data with minimal delay and without interrupting running queries.
In this blog post, you will learn an approach for continuous loading of data into Impala via HDFS,
Combining CDH with a business execution engine can serve as a solid foundation for complex event processing on big data.
Event processing involves tracking and analyzing streams of data from events to support better insight and decision making. With the recent explosion in data volume and diversity of data sources, this goal can be quite challenging for architects to achieve.
Complex event processing (CEP) is a type of event processing that combines data from multiple sources to identify patterns and complex relationships across various events.
Learn the details about using Impala alongside Kudu.
Kudu (currently in beta), the new storage layer for the Apache Hadoop ecosystem, is tightly integrated with Impala, allowing you to insert, query, update, and delete data from Kudu tablets using Impala’s SQL syntax, as an alternative to using the Kudu APIs to build a custom Kudu application. In addition, you can use JDBC or ODBC to connect existing or new applications written in any language,
This post from the HUE team about using HUE (the open source web GUI for Apache Hadoop), Apache Spark, and SQL for analytics was initially published in the HUE project’s blog.
Apache Spark is getting popular and HUE contributors are working on making it accessible to even more users. Specifically, by creating a Web interface that allows anyone with a browser to type some Spark code and execute it.
