Techopedia explains Apache Drill

Drill is an Apache top-level project. Apache Drill is the open-source version of Google’s Dremel system. One of the biggest advantages of using Drill is its data optimizer, which is able to automatically rearrange the data structure in order to save space and internal processing capacities of a datastore. Drill is also able to store data location, so it is able to locate Drill and datastore at the same nodes without any confusion.

Apache Drill is able to process petabytes of data stored in as many as 10,000 servers and millions of records in mere seconds.
