Hive/Impala queries with Accumulo

Hive/Impala queries with Accumulo

New Contributor

I’m trying to better understand the capabilities of Accumulo. Can Hive and Impala queries run on data stored in Accumulo? If yes, are additional tools needed; what would this look like? Thank you in advance for your input!

It's not included in either component, but you might have some luck with:
https://github.com/bfemiano/accumulo-hive-storage-manager

Although you'll likely have to delve into the code as it's not been updated in 7 months. HBase / Hive play nicer together, so unless you need the fine grained access control in Accumulo you could look there.

Thank you Hadooptom! Like you mentioned, I want to use Accumulo for the fine grained access control. I'll look into the github project and let you know how it goes.

Out of curiosity, did you have any luck with that GitHub project?

I am also interested in using Hive on top of Accumulo..

You should follow along with HIVE-7068 to find out the current status of the Accumulo StorageHandler for Hive. I'm sure the folks working on it would love some testing help and feedback.
