This event is sponsored by Cloudera Inc.one of the biggest Hadoop Distributions on the market that provides Apache Hadoop-based software, support and services, and training to business customers.

Cloudera's open-source Apache Hadoop distribution, CDH (Cloudera Distribution Including Apache Hadoop), targets enterprise-class deployments of that technology. More than 50% of its engineering output is donated upstream to the various Apache-licensed open source projects (Apache Hive, Apache Avro, Apache HBase, and so on) that combine to form the Hadoop platform. Cloudera is also a sponsor of the Apache Software Foundation.


Cloudera Impala provides fast, ad hoc SQL query capability for Apache Hadoop, complementing traditional MapReduce batch processing. 

Learn the design choices and architecture behind Impala, and how to use near-ubiquitous SQL to explore your own data at scale.
