Cloudera Operational Database Open Database Connectivity support
You can use the Database Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) interface to access the operational database. The ODBC driver is provided by Cloudera as an additonal download, but you can also use ODBC drivers from third-party providers.
The driver complies with the ODBC 3.80 data standard, including important functionality such as Unicode and 32-bit and 64-bit support for high-performance computing environments on all platforms. ODBC is one of the most established and widely supported API for connecting to and working with databases. At the heart of the technology is the ODBC driver, which connects an application to the database.
