Word of the Day – Apache Hive

Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

“Hive provides a mechanism to project structure and query data using a SQL-like language called HiveQL. At the same time this language also allows traditional map/reduce programmers to plug in their custom mappers and reducers when it is inconvenient or inefficient to express logic in HiveQL.”Roger Jennings

Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the Day is Apache Hive, an open-source data warehouse system for querying and analyzing large datasets stored in Hadoop files.
