Whilst the chennuri gouri shankar answer with a link to the Hadoop Connector allows an existing Kognitio instance to connect to a Hadoop cluster, you can also run Kognitio as a YARN application on your Hadoop cluster, which has a number of benefits:

  • you don't need separate hardware for running Kognitio
  • you will get better performance if the Kognitio software is running locally, on the same platform as the data
  • you can use Kognitio on Hadoop free for any scale, no functionality restrictions, and no time limit.

For more details on downloading and using Kognitio on Hadoop see on-hadoop

Note that if you have problems getting permission to evaluate new software on your in-house Hadoop cluster(s), you can try on Amazon EMR (for free, except for the costs of the Amazon resource). With spot pricing you can run a 5TB machine with 640 processors for $15 per hour currently. More information in this blog post from our website.

There is a blog post that takes you through the process of installing Kognitio on Hortonworks.

In addition, Kognitio did some benchmarking against various SQL on Hadoop offerings using the industry standard TPC-DS data and query set. You can see the comparison with Hive LLAP by following this link.
