Druid is an open-source data store designed for sub-second queries on real-time and historical data. Druid can scale to store trillion of events and ingest millions of events per second. Druid is best used to power user-facing data applications.
Imply is an analytics solution powered by druid. The Imply Analytics platform includes Druid bundled with all its dependencies, an exploratory analytics UI, and a SQL layer. It also provides additional tools and scripts for easy management of druid nodes.
Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications, whether on laptops, data center VMs, or the cloud.
In this post, I will demonstrate how to install and run Imply Druid distribution inside a Docker container.
