Apache Iceberg features

You can quickly build on your past experience with SQL to analyze Iceberg tables.

Iceberg features include security and governance, and other Cloudera Data Platform benefits, described in Apache Iceberg in CDP.

Impala queries are table-format agnostic. For example, Impala options are supported in queries of Iceberg tables from Impala. You can run nested, correlated, analytic queries on all supported table types.

Most Hive queries are table-format agnostic. This documentation does not attempt to show every possible query supported from Hive and Impala. For example, creating a view is not covered, but you can create a view of any table from Hive or Impala using SQL syntax. The following topics show many examples of how to run queries on Iceberg tables from Hive and Impala.
