Implementing Temporal Graphs with Apache TinkerPop and HGraphDB

Categories: Graph Processing Hadoop HBase How-to

When most people think of Big Data, often they imagine loads of unstructured data. However, there is always some sort of structure or relationships within this data.

Introducing Apache HBase Medium Object Storage (MOB) compaction partition policies

Categories: HBase
