InformationWeek about today’s Impala 1.0 release:
Impala supports direct querying of data in the Hadoop Distributed File
System (HDFS) and HBase (NoSQL database) indexes, and Cloudera claims it’s
3X to 30X faster than Hive. Beta customers report results that are falling
into that range. Six3 Systems, for example, a systems integrator serving
federal agencies, has seen at least 14X faster querying than Hive, according
to analytics developer Wayne Wheeles.
