Re: peformance
Hey Drew,

This could be a very broad question, so I'll give a partial answer and
encourage you to come back for more details.

Impala is a mechanism that sits on top of HBase or HDFS that is design to
filter and process large quantities of data. People generally like Impala
because it supports a subset of SQL and because it is optimized to reduce
the latency that might be incurred by starting up a job in a bulk
synchronous processing framework. Instead, it uses a series of daemon
processes and a custom API to reduce overhead.

With Accumulo, our approach to low-latency queries is generally to use a
table structure that incorporates some type of index. With appropriate
indexing techniques, Accumulo can achieve sub-second query latencies even
over multi-petabyte sized corpuses. Some of these table designs are
described in the manual:

Regarding the SQL piece, Accumulo does not natively support an SQL
interface. For that you would need to wrap it in a processing framework,
like Hive (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-143). To make a
shameless plug, Sqrrl (www.sqrrl.com) also offers that functionality.
