Reason for Storing Hive Metastore in RDBMS


Hi Sir,

Just wanted to know the Rationale behind storing Hive Metastore Data in RDBMS and not on HDFS/Hive Databases:

Is it due to Latency? Please correct me if I am wrong and also additional advantages of storing it under RDMS

It is for both latency and durability while storing metadata and accessing it.
