Chapter 4. Working with Large Distributed Systems Part II
In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:
- Internals of the HBSE system
- How design decisions allow Hbase to truly scale
This chapter will allow the actor to have a closer look at the design decisions and how these designs allow Hbase to scale without losing its integrity and performance.
As you know Hbase is a database, which essentially takes all the advantage of using the core foundation of HDFS and MapReduce. This allows it to scale in a distributed architecture. Its schemaless design allows us to bring in a unique ability and flexibility to make design decisions based on the way the data needs to be stored at a very large scale. It also allows fast scans, growth at ...
