The advantages of using HBase are as follows:
The HBase Data Model is made up of the following logical components:
Apache HBase is a non-relational distributed data store that is built on top of the HDFS and is also a part of the Hadoop ecosystem. Thus, HBase can leverage all the features that are offered by the HDFS and are available in the Hadoop ecosystem. …
NoSQL databases are of the following four types:
The CAP theorem states that a distributed database can fulfil at most two out of three guarantees, that is, Consistency, Availability and Partition Tolerance.
Since it is not possible to fulfil all three requirements, a combination of two must be chosen for deciding what technology to use. …
The three basic characteristics of a distributed database are as follows:
Relational database management systems (RDBMS) have been the one-stop solution to all storage needs. They support Structured Query Language (SQL) to make changes to the database. Data in an RDBMS is stored in the form of tables with rows and columns. Data in RDBMSes also tend to be more secure…
Data that is generated today is of three basic types: structured, semi-structured and unstructured.
Structured data is often considered quantitative. It has the following features:
A NoSQL database, where NoSQL stands for ‘Not only SQL’, is a distributed database. In a NoSQL database, unstructured data is stored across multiple servers (cluster of machines).
NoSQL databases have the following features:
