RecordService provides an abstraction layer between compute frameworks and data storage. It provides row- and column-level security, and other advantages.
Storage Agnostic Clients
Clients work independently of on-disk storage format. Components swap transparently above or below RecordService.
Impala Quality Performance
Performance is improved through the optimized scanner, dynamic code generation, and Parquet implementation provided by Impala. Existing MapReduce and Spark jobs gain Impala-quality performance.
