Altiscale, Inc. Announces Availability of Apache Hive 0.13 on HaaS Platform

Altiscale, Inc. has announced the availability of Apache Hive 0.13 on its HaaS platform. For data scientists and businesses that rely on insights derived from data, Hive 0.13 can deliver significant performance gains over previous versions. Since Altiscale performs integration and performance testing as part of operational certification, customers can immediately take full advantage of this new tool. At its core, Hive is an application designed to enable querying and managing of large datasets. Hive 0.13 represents a significant step forward, as it delivers the final phase of the Stinger Initiative, a project managed and completed by the open source Hadoop community. This initiative brought together work from hundreds of developers and dozens of companies. It is designed to marry SQL, the primary language used with business analysts for ad hoc analysis, with Hadoop. Hive 0.13 makes Hadoop accessible to a larger group of users, as the skills required to use SQL are very common within the IT industry. As a result, Hive 0.13 brings a broader audience of data scientists and business analysts to Hadoop. The most important improvements of Hive 0.13 are related to the speed and scale it brings to users, made possible by the Apache Tezexecution engine.
