Slidecast: Technical Overview of Cloudera Impala

In this slidecast, Justin Erickson from Cloudera presents a technical overview of Cloudera Impala, an SQL-on-Hadoop solution that enables users to do real-time queries of data stored in Hadoop clusters.

The result is order-of-magnitude faster performance than Hive, depending on the type of query and configuration.
