Five years ago, Cloudera shared with the world our plan to transfer the lessons from decades of relational database research to the Apache Hadoop platform via a new SQL engine — Apache Impala — the first and fastest open source MPP SQL engine for Hadoop. Impala enabled SQL users to operate on vast amounts of data in open formats, stored on HDFS originally (with Apache Kudu, Amazon S3, and Microsoft ADLS now also native storage options),
When it comes to self-service business intelligence and exploratory analytics, Cloudera has continued to push limits and innovate to help our customers expedite this journey and get the most value from their data. Over the past year, we have made a number of significant advancements in Hue to provide a more powerful user experience for SQL developers and make them more productive for their every day self-service BI tasks and workflows.
With the recent release of Cloudera 5.12,
New R package implyr enables R users to query Impala using dplyr.
Apache Impala (incubating) enables low-latency interactive SQL queries on data stored in HDFS, Amazon S3, Apache Kudu, and Apache HBase. With the availability of the R package implyr on CRAN and GitHub, it’s now possible to query Impala from R using the popular package dplyr.
dplyr provides a grammar of data manipulation,
