Apache Hive is the de facto standard for SQL-in-Hadoop today with more enterprises relying on this open source project than any alternative. As Hadoop gains in popularity, enterprise requirements for Hive to become more real time or interactive have evolved… and the Hive community has responded.
The Stinger Initiative is a collection of development threads in the Hive community that will deliver 100X performance improvements as well full SQL compatibility.
1. Fast Interactive Query
An immediate aim of 100x performance increase for Hive is more ambitious than any other effort. Stinger will deliver this with the rigor that enterprises need. 50X improvements have already been delivered.
2. Complete SQL Compatibility
Based on industry standard SQL, the Stinger Initiative improves HiveQL to deliver full SQL compatibility.
