Difference between Impala and MongoDB

1. Impala :
Impala is a query engine that runs on Hadoop. It is an open source software and massively parallel processing SQL query engine. It supports in-memory data processing. It is pioneering the use of the Parquet file format, a columnar storage layout that is optimized for large-scale queries typical in data warehouse scenarios. It provides high-performance, low-latency SQL queries and also offers interactive query processing on data stored in Hadoop file formats.

2. Mongodb :
MongoDB is a cross-platform document-oriented and a non relational (i.e., NoSQL) database program. It is an open-source document database, that stores the data in the form of key-value pairs. MongoDB is developed by MongoDB Inc. and initially released on 11 February 2009. It is written in C++, Go, JavaScript, Python languages. MongoDB offers high speed, high availability, and high scalability.
