Even if you are not familiar with Clojure, you’ll still enjoy this fantastic HBase tutorial:
And that’s the thing: if you are loading literally gajigabytes of data into HBase you need to be pretty sure that it’s going to be able to answer your questions in a reasonable amount of time. Simply cramming it in there probably won’t work (indeed, that approach probably won’t work great for anything). I loaded and re-loaded a test set of twenty thousand rows until I had something that worked.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
