  = What is Hive =
  [http://hadoop.apache.org/hive/ Hive] is a data warehouse infrastructure built on top of
Hadoop that provides tools to enable easy data summarization, adhoc querying and analysis
of large datasets data stored in Hadoop files. It provides a mechanism to put structure on
this data and it also provides a simple query language called QL which is based on SQL and
which enables users familiar with SQL to query this data. At the same time, this language
also allows traditional map/reduce programmers to be able to plug in their custom mappers
and reducers to do more sophisticated analysis which may not be supported by the built in
capabilities of the language.
