Hive has three main functions data summarization, query and analysis. It supports queries expressed in a language called HiveQL, which automatically translates SQL-like queries into MapReduce jobs executed on Hadoop.
Hadoop Hive Access and Integration Made Easy
Hadoop Hive provides massively scalable, fault-tolerant data warehousing on top of a Hadoop MapReduce storage and computation grid. Ideally suited to big data analytics, Hadoop Hive supports summarization, analysis, and ad-hoc querying of very large datasets distributed across a cluster of commodity hardware.
Smart Source makes deploying a hadoop cluster with Hive simple whether you need a free Proof-of-Concept (POC) trial, development environment, or a full blown production environment.
