If the data is already in the right format you should use LOAD syntax in Hive. This basically moves files into hdfs (so it should be not less performant than hdfs). If the data is not in the correct format or it needs to be transformed then the insert statement needs to be used.

I'm trying to compare adding files to hdfs for Hive usage using Hive inserts vs. adding to the hdfs directly then using Hive.
Any comments, blogging about this?
Thanks a lot,
