Topic: SQL Access to HDFS Data

  • Jul 17, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Discussion/presentation of Hive and BigSQL.

Big SQL doesn't turn Hadoop into one big distributed relational database. If you're curious about what Big SQL can do, we'll explore the basics here, try to clear up some common misconceptions, and answer many of the questions that relational DBMS users often have about this new technology.

We'll also discuss Hive - the "SQL-like" capability that is part of Hadoop.

    I know this is late. Wondering the Organizer could upload the presentation slides under the file tab? Thank You

    Some of the features of Big SQL like performing the joins with a single Map reduce job as compared to multiple jobs with Hive is good for performance. Would be interesting to see how outer joins are performed! Thanks for the informative session Dan!
