What is Apache HBase ?
Apache HBase is The database environment for the Apache Hadoop suite, providing a database engine capable of storing data in millions of rows and columns .
Apache HBase was modeled after Google’s internal BigTable database system and was built atop the famous Apache Hadoop data processing framework and distributed computing engine.Because it was built on Hadoop, some of its cool features are also inherited in HBase, features like a scalable architecture, hardware faults tolerance, modularity, and real-time, parallel computing support.On top of this, the HBase codebase also contributes with table sharding support, an easy Java API for clients to connect to, caching, query filters, and many other more.HBase is definitely an alternative solution if you can’t afford to rent out large cloud-based databases, coming at a much lower costs but providing all the main BigTable features.As with any top level Apache project, HBase comes with plenty of documentation to get you started.
