Subject Re: Hive on Spark

What you described isn't part of the functionality of Hive on Spark.
Rather, Spark is used here as a general purpose engine similar to MR but
without intemediate stages. It's batch origientated.

Keeping 100T data in memory is hardly beneficial unless you know that that
dataset is going to be used in subsequent queries.

For loading data in memory and providing near real-time response, you might
want to look at some memory-based DBs.
