The Impala project has already passed several important milestones on the way to its status as the leader and open standard for BI and SQL analytics on modern big data architecture. Today’s milestone is the submission of proposals for Impala and Kudu to join the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) Incubator.
[Update: Read the text of the Impala and Kudu proposals here and here, respectively.]
Since its initial release nearly five years ago,
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,
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,
