New ODBC Drivers from Cloudera support Mac!September 2, 2013 by Amyn Rajan in Cloudera Data Access Data Analytics Hadoop ODBC Tableau
Cloudera just released version 2.5 of their ODBC drivers for Hive and Impala. A key new feature of these ODBC drivers is that they now support MacOS as well as the traditional Linux and Windows OSes. The Mac platform continues to gain traction (Tableau will soon have a Mac version of their namesake product) and it is now good to see Cloudera support all applications that run on the Mac by making available a Mac version of the ODBC driver. If you need the ODBC drivers for Hive or Impala, you can get them on the Cloudera website: http://www.cloudera.com/content/support/en/downloads/download-components/download-products/downloads-listing/connectors/cloudera-odbc-drivers.html.
