Big Data

This section describes changes to big data features.

Hive Environment

Effective in version 10.0, the Hive environment no longer appears as a run-time or validation environment in the Developer tool user interface. The Hive environment is changed to the Hive engine that uses Hadoop technology for processing batch data such as MapReduce or Tez.
For more information, see the
Informatica 10.0 Big Data Edition User Guide

JCE Policy File Installation

Effective in version 10.0, Informatica Big Data Management ships the JCE policy file and installs it when you run the installer.
Previously, you had to download and manually install the JCE policy file for AES encryption.

Kerberos Authentication

Effective in version 10.0, a Hadoop cluster cannot use only an MIT key distribution center (KDC) for Kerberos authentication. Hadoop clusters can use a Microsoft Active Directory KDC or an MIT KDC connected to Active directory with a one-way cross realm trust.
