Simba Provides direct SQL Access for Hive and HBase on the Intel(R) 
Distribution for Apache Hadoop Software 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- Strata
2013 Conference - Simba Technologies, the industry's Open Database
Connectivity (ODBC) expert for Big Data solutions, announced today
that it has worked with Intel, to provide ODBC access to the Intel(R)
Distribution for Apache Hadoop(i) software. Simba's Apache Hive and
HBase ODBC Drivers with SQL Connectors provide customers easy access
to their data for Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics using the
SQL-based application of their choice on the Intel(R) Distribution
for Apache Hadoop software. 
ODBC is the most common data interface used by BI, data analysis and
reporting applications. The ODBC 3.52 specification - on which
Simba's Apache Hive ODBC Driver with SQL Connector is fully compliant
- is the foundation for standards-based access from BI tools such as
Alteryx, Microsoft Excel, Tableau, SAP BusinessObjects Crystal
Reports and countless others. ODBC was developed in 1992 by Microsoft
and Simba Technologies and has been the flagship API for SQL ever
since. 
Unlike other drivers for Hive, Simba's Apache Hive ODBC Driver with
SQL Connector performs the added task of mapping standard SQL-92 to
HiveQL-thereby seamlessly integrating data residing in Hadoop with
any SQL-based applications. 
For your HBase data which was previously not accessible with any
query language, Simba's Apache HBase ODBC Driver with SQL Connector
opens up the world of enterprise-class analytic and reporting
applications. 
"Both Simba's Apache Hive and HBase ODBC Driver with SQL Connector
are based upon the latest ODBC standard, opening up the entire
ecosystem of SQL-based applications to access and analyze Big Data in
Hadoop," said George Chow, Simba's CTO. "ODBC connectivity to the
Intel(R) Distribution for Apache Hadoop software makes data
accessible to enterprise users, using proven tools found in the data
scientist's and business user's BI toolbox. We look forward to the
success of Intel in the Hadoop world." 
"Intel(R) Distribution for Apache Hadoop software is designed to be a
broad platform for a wide range of data analysis applications. For
enterprise business analysts using a variety of SQL applications,
Intel(R) Distribution provides a powerful connectivity option powered
by Simba's HBase and Hive ODBC connectors," said Girish Juneja,
General Manager, Big Data Software, Intel Corporation. "With close
integration of capabilities, the Intel(R) Distribution and Simba's
connectivity innovations deliver outstanding value to our joint
customers." 
Built upon the SimbaEngine SDK driver development framework - the
industry's leading ODBC toolkit for high-performance ODBC driver
development - Simba's Apache Hive ODBC Driver with SQL Connector and
Apache HBase ODBC Driver with SQL Connector complies with the latest
ODBC 3.52 data standard and adds important functionality such as
Unicode and 32- and 64-bit support for high-performance computing
environments on all platforms.
