Impala use cases

[ Edited ]

I have been experimenting with Impala recently. I can confirm that It is as fast as advertised and works well for ad-hoc analytics queries.


Now I am considering to expand the use of Impala beyond ad-hoc queries. Would you consider it is a suitable solution for some of the following use cases (using JDBC)?


  1. Internal analytics dashboard 
  2. External analytics dashboard (~1000 registered users)
  3. Public website to show some nearly realtime stats
