Drill your data on hadoop cluster using Apache Drill

I have been working on MapR and Cloudera big data distribution for the past year.  I have been fascinated by its capability.  One of my favorite is Apache Drill, a schema on read SQL interface to HDFS file system.  Its pretty slick, you can query the data via its native shell interface or its web interface or using Drill Explorer client that you can install on your machine.  Learn more about Apache Drill  and  best practices for Apache Drill

Happy Drilling !

Big Data distribution downloads

I have been working on evaluating different big data solutions for the past few months.  If you want to give them a show, here are few of major big data solutions, these links are quick start VM images :

Cloudera
IBM
Hortonworks
MapR

You can download vanilla hadoop straight from the apache website But then you have to install the rest of the components by yourself.
