Can another ODBC driver different than the Simba driver be used to connect HANA to a Hive DB?


The SAP Help documentation offers two options to connect to a Hive/Hadoop DB: HANA Spark Controller or Simba ODBC Driver.

In a situation where the Spark Controller is not an option, like the Hive DB being owned by an external party, is the Simba ODBC driver the only option available to connect HANA to the Hive DB, or another driver, like Cloudera Hive ODBC Driver is supported?

Thank you in advance,
