Cloudera and R

Ian Cook shows us how Cloudera works for R users:

Our customers love it when they can use familiar syntax to work with data regardless of its size or its source. The popularity of sparklyr is a case in point: it enables R users to use either SQL or dplyr—both familiar to most R users—to work with large-scale data using Apache Spark. Two R packages developed at Cloudera—implyr and tidyquery—aim to provide this same choice of either SQL or dplyr when querying tables with Apache Impala and when manipulating R data frames.

The implyr package is new to me, but looks interesting.
