One of the more common requests we receive from the community is to package Apache HBase with Cloudera’s Distribution for Apache Hadoop. Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of work on making Cloudera’s packages easy to use, and recently, the HBase team has pitched in to help us deliver compatible HBase packages. We’re pretty excited about this, and we’re looking forward to your feedback. A big thanks to Andrew Purtell, a Senior Architect at TrendMicro and HBase Contributor, for leading this packaging project and providing this guest blog post. -Chad Metcalf
What is HBase?
Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, column-oriented store modeled after Google’s Bigtable large scale structured data storage system. You can read Google’s Bigtable paper here.
