HBase is a column-oriented distributed cloud storage system. It features enhanced reliability, excellent performance, and elastic scalability.
It is applicable in distributed computing and the storage of massive data. With HBase, users can filter and analyze data with ease and get responses in milliseconds, thereby rapidly mining data.
Users can use HBase to build a storage system capable of storing TB or PB of data. It also provides dynamic scaling capabilities so that users can adjust cluster resources to meet specific performance or capacity requirements.
The columnar and key-value storage models apply to the ad-hoc querying of enterprise user details. The low-latency point query, based on the master key, reduces the response latency to seconds or milliseconds, facilitating real-time data analysis.
HBase has the following highlights:
