The Apache Drill Project has announced the release of Apache DrillTM v1.19, a schema-free big data SQL query engine for Apache Hadoop, NoSQL, and cloud storage.
“Drill 1.19 is the biggest release ever,” said Charles Givre, Vice President of Apache Drill. “With the already short learning curve, Drill 1.19 makes it even easier for users to quickly query, analyze, and visualize data from different sources and complex datasets.”
This tool provides a schema-free JSON model. This allows users to query complex semi-structured data without having to define a schema or transform the data. It also provides integration with Hive and HBase deployments and can access multiple data sources such as S3 and Apache HDFS, HBase, and Hive.
Drill supports dozens of NoSQL databases and file systems, as well as the ANSI SQL 2003 standard syntax ecosystem.
The new version includes new connectors for Apache Cassandra, Elasticsearch, and Splunk, as well as a new format reader for schemaless XML.
It also includes the addition of Avro support for the Kafka plugin, an integrated password vault for secure credential storage, support for Linux ARM64 systems, and more.
The Apache Drill software is released under the Apache License v2.0 and is overseen by a volunteer self-selection team of active contributors to the project.
