Apache Spark ODBC Driver

Spreadsheet, Reporting & BI Applications Using SQL To Query & Update Apache Spark Data.

Real-time read-write access to Apache Spark from Microsoft Office, Database, Web Server and Reporting applications.

The Apache Spark ODBC Driver allows you to use Apache Spark SQL data in any application that supports ODBC. For example, Microsoft Access, Excel, SQL Server, Oracle, PHP and Perl. You can query Spark SQL data as well as adding, updating and deleting Spark SQL records.

The Apache Spark ODBC Driver accesses Apache Spark via the Apache Spark Thrift server.

Please note that this is a beta release of the driver, and therefore not suitable for production use.
