Cloudera ODBC Connector for MicroStrategy Installation Guide
The Cloudera Connector for MicroStrategy enables your enterprise users to access Hadoop data through the Business Intelligence application MicroStrategy 9.3.1. The driver achieves this by translating Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) calls from MicroStrategy into SQL and passing the SQL queries to the underlying Impala or Hive engines. The driver supports Cloudera Impala 1.0 and above, and the Apache Hive versions supplied with CDH 4.2 and above.
Version 2 of the ODBC driver works with the HiveServer2 protocol. This is an improvement to the original Hive communication protocol, featuring multi-client concurrency and authentication. It is supported by both Cloudera Impala, and Apache Hive in CDH 4.1 and higher. When using Impala, by default you connect to a different communication port than with the Version 1.x ODBC driver.
