Db2 Big SQL is a cloud-native, elastic, scalable SQL engine optimized for
workloads on data stored in object stores or HDFS.
Db2 Big SQL can query data stored on legacy Hadoop clusters, using the
configurations of open source components, such as:
- Hive metastore
Using Db2 Big SQL with IBM Cloud Pak for Data can be useful in the following
- You need to query large amounts of data residing on legacy Hadoop secured
(Kerberized) or unsecured clusters and on private or public cloud object
- You need highly optimized queries for multiple open source data formats,
including Parquet, ORC, Avro, and CSV.
