Lumira Support for Cloudera Impala
Demand for high-performance on Hadoop is increasing as organizations start to recognize the value of being able to run analytics against traditional and nontraditional datasets in Hadoop.
To that end, we now support Cloudera Impala, the leading open source analytic database for Hadoop, directly from within Lumira, using Simba’s drivers. Connect without the need to install or deploy any additional drivers.
Impala has all the benefits of Hadoop (scalability, affordability vs. a traditional data warehouse, no need for rigid data schemas) with the performance enterprise analytics users have come to expect.
Here’s a webinar with a great demo of Lumira leveraging the Simba Drivers. More information about Impala’s performance can be found in this blog on Impala benchmarking.
