Hive Installation

Apache Hive is a powerful data warehousing application built on top of Hadoop which enables you to access your data using Hive QL, a language that is similar to SQL. Install Hive on your client machine where you submit jobs; you don't need to install it on your servers.


If you have not already done so, install Cloudera's yum, zypper/YaST or apt repository before using the following commands to install Hive. For instructions, see CDH3 Installation.
