Our ODBC Driver for Cloudera Impala is Three Months Old!

September 24, 2013 0 Comments

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost three whole months since we released our ODBC driver for Cloudera Impala. We were excited to offer the expanded support, and we’re thrilled to continue to bring SQL access and standard based connectivity to our numerous users across geographies.

If you missed our webinar, “Powering Big Data Analytics with Cloudera Impala,” you can replay the recording here. So far, the reviews from the field are very good. Tested with Cloudera Impala 1.0 – it simply works.

Why Use Cloudera Impala?

The challenge of Big Data lies in how to analyze it efficiently. Cloudera Impala enables you real-time queries in Apache Hadoop. It scales across Hadoop cluster to support massive queries and executes queries in minutes and seconds, instead of hours and days. All this helps in being able to query your Big Data efficiently and truly opens it up to use across the whole organization.

What Do We Bring in?

  • High performance connectivity
    • High throughput and low, more efficient memory usage
  • ODBC standards compliance
    • Works with third party applications – you can get the SQL access you need!
    • Plug it in and it “just works”
  • No client library to compile and distribute
    • Ease of deployment and ongoing management
  • Multiple platform support
    • All major platforms
    • 64-bit support!
