How Lily, a CMS from OuterThought, is using HBase as its storage:
Lily offers a content model on top of HBase, which we believe to be of value for many layman content application developers, in the sense that if offers slightly higher-level concepts to shape a datatier with: records and fields, a set of data types, link, multi-value and hierarchical fields, a flexible versioning scheme, schema validation. Beyond that, we took a couple of popular content exchange models and verified if a mapping from these into Lily would be possible: HTML, RDF, the CMIS model, NewsML. We found out that a useful mapping was possible, so we’re confident that a broad range of content applications can be build on top of Lily.
