This book is continuation to my book: Hadoop Big Data Guide for beginners. Hive is the module of Hadoop. It is a platform used to develop SQL type scripts to do MapReduce operations. Hive is a data warehouse infrastructure tool to process structured data in Hadoop. It resides on top of Hadoop to summarize Big Data, and makes querying and analyzing easy. Initially Hive was developed by Facebook, later the Apache Software Foundation took it up and developed it further as an open source under the name Apache Hive. I’m sure you will get to know a lot of things for Hive in this book.
