Pivotal Xtension Framework (PXF) is an external table interface that gives SQL access on top of data stored within the Hadoop ecosystem. It enables loading and querying of data stored in HDFS, HBase and Hive. It supports a wide range of data formats such as Text, AVRO, Hive, Sequence, RCFile formats and HBase.
Example uses cases include using statistical and analytical functions from HAWQ (e.g. Madlib) on HBase or Hive data, Joining in-database dimensions with HBase facts, leveraging analytical capabilities on Hadoop data files of various kinds and fast ingest of data into HAWQ for in database processing and analytics.
PXF is in the process of being open-sourced.
