How can I connect HDFS through .NET ?

How can I connect HDFS through .NET ?

I want to pass some value via .NET, search the value in HDFS files and return the file name based on matching value.

If not possible to connect HDFS directly through .NET, then can I connect HIVE using ODBC connection throught .NET ?


Using CDH 5.3.3


Please suggest.
