There are many options for providing SQL access over data in a Hadoop cluster, including proprietary vendor products along with open-source technologies such as Apache Hive, Cloudera Impala and Apache Drill; customers are using those to provide reporting over their Hadoop and relational data platforms, and looking to add capabilities such as calculation engines, data integration and federation along with in-memory caching to create complete analytic platforms. In this session we’ll look at the options that are available, compare database vendor solutions with their open-source alternative, and see how emerging vendors are going beyond simple SQL-on-Hadoop products to offer complete “data fabric” solutions that bring together old-world and new-world technologies and allow seamless offloading of archive data and compute work to lower-cost Hadoop platforms.
