Apache MapReduce is the most popular framework for batch data processing. However, despite its merits, the critical challenge of Apache MapReduce is rapidly handling queries over large scale data. This review aims to provide the state-of-the-art of Apache Hive, a famous language to handle big query data on Apache MapReduce.
