The Apache Hive ™ data warehouse software facilitates reading, writing, and managing large datasets residing in distributed storage using SQL. Structure can be projected onto data already in storage. A command line tool and JDBC driver are provided to connect users to Hive.
Apache Hive is an open source project run by volunteers at the Apache Software Foundation. Previously it was a subproject of Apache® Hadoop®, but has now graduated to become a top-level project of its own. We encourage you to learn about the project and contribute your expertise.
