"HBase is the Hadoop database. Use it when you need random, realtime read/write access to your Big Data. This project's goal is the hosting of very large tables -- billions of rows X millions of columns -- atop clusters of commodity hardware.

HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store modeled after Google' Bigtable: A Distributed Storage System for Structured Data by Chang et al."

Start by installing HBase on a single machine or a very small cluster.

  1. Learn about HBase by reading the documentation.
  2. Download HBase from the release page.
