Apache Drill: Building Highly Flexible, High Performance Query Engines

Steven Phillips View Bio


Apache Drill brings the power of standard ANSI:SQL 2003 to your desktop and your clusters. It is like AWK for Hadoop. Drill supports querying schemaless systems like HBase, Cassandra and MongoDB. Use standard JDBC and ODBC APIs to use Drill from your custom applications. Leveraging an efficient columnar storage format, an optimistic execution engine and a cache-conscious memory layout, Apache Drill is blazing fast. Coordination, query planning, optimization, scheduling, and execution are all distributed throughout nodes in a system to maximize parallelization. This presentation contains live demonstrations.
