Learn the fundamentals of HBase administration and development with the help of real-time scenarios
Apache HBase is a nonrelational NoSQL database management system that runs on top of HDFS. It is an open source, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store. It facilitates the tech industry with random, real-time read/write access to your Big Data with the benefit of linear scalability on the fly.
This book will take you through a series of core tasks in HBase. The introductory chapter will give you all the information you need about the HBase ecosystem. Furthermore, you'll learn how to configure, create, verify, and test clusters. The book also explores different parameters of Hadoop and HBase that need to be considered for optimization and a trouble-free operation of the cluster. It will focus more on HBase's data model, storage, and structure layout. You will also get to know the different options that can be used to speed up the operation and functioning of HBase. The book will also teach the users basic- and advance-level coding in Java for HBase. By the end of the book, you will have learned how to use HBase with large data sets and integrate them with Hadoop.
