Dremel (software)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dremel is a distributed system developed at Google for interactively querying large datasets.

Dremel is the query engine used in Google's BigQuery service.[1]

Dremel is the inspiration for Apache Drill,[2] Apache Impala,[3] and Dremio,[4] an Apache licensed platform that includes a distributed SQL execution engine.

In 2020, Dremel won the Test of Time award[5] at the VLDB 2020 conference recognizing the innovations it pioneered.
