Cloudera SQL Stream Builder
Eventador’s SQL Stream Builder is now being relaunched as Cloudera SQL Stream Builder after Cloudera’s acquisition of the company late last year. 

It is now fully integrated with Cloudera’s Data Platform’s Shared Data Experience, which means that it will have access to the same unified and governance capabilities that the rest of the platform has. 

SQL Stream Builder continuously runs SQL via Flink and offers syntax checking, error reporting, schema detection, query creation, sampling results and creating outputs.
