Welcome to Impala

Lightning-fast, distributed SQL queries for petabytes of data stored in Apache Hadoop clusters.

Impala is a modern, massively-distributed, massively-parallel, C++ query engine that lets you analyze, transform and combine data from a variety of data sources:

  • Best of breed performance and scalability.
  • Support for data stored in HDFS, Apache HBase, Apache Kudu, Amazon S3, Azure Data Lake Storage, Apache Hadoop Ozone and more!
  • Wide analytic SQL support, including window functions and subqueries.
  • On-the-fly code generation using LLVM to generate lightning-fast code tailored specifically to each individual query.
  • Support for the most commonly-used Hadoop file formats, including Apache Parquet and Apache ORC.
  • Support for industry-standard security protocols, including Kerberos, LDAP and TLS.
  • Apache-licensed, 100% open source.
