Difference between Hive and Cassandra

1. Hive :
Hive is a data warehouse software for querying and managing large distributed datasets, built on Hadoop. It is developed by Apache Software Foundation in 2012. It contains two modules, one is MapReduce and another is Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). It stores schema in a database and processed data into HDFS. It resides on top of Hadoop to summarize Big Data, and makes querying and analyzing easy.

2. Cassandra :
Cassandra is a free and open-source, distributed, wide column store, NoSQL database management system. It was developed by Apache Software foundation and initially released on July 2008. Cassandra is designed to handle large amounts of data across many commodity servers, providing high availability with no single point of failure.
