Magnitude’s Simba Drill ODBC and JDBC drivers deliver ODBC 3.8 & JDBC 4.1 for Apache Drill’s low-latency SQL Query Engine.
Drill provides an ANSI SQL query layer and also exposes metadata information through an ANSI SQL standard metadata database called INFORMATION_SCHEMA. The Simba Drill ODBC and JDBC Drivers leverage INFORMATION_SCHEMA to expose Drill’s metadata to BI tools as needed.
Apache Drill is a schema-free SQL query engine for Hadoop, NoSQL, and cloud storage. Drill provides analysts with instant, self-service analytics on multiple data sources without having to load data, manage schemas, or pre-process data. The Simba ODBC & JDBC drivers are the ideal complement for Drill’s dynamic SQL-querying capabilities and support for schema-less data.
Magnitude’s Simba Drill ODBC and JDBC Drivers support both catalogs and schemas to make it easy for the driver to work with various ODBC|JDBC applications. Since Drill only organizes tables into schemas/databases, the drivers provide a synthetic catalog named DRILL under which all the schemas/databases are organized. The driver also maps the ODBC | JDBC schema to the Drill catalog.
