on top of the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). It is columnar and provides fault-tolerant storage and quick access to large quantities of sparse data HBase is the Hadoop application to use when you require real-time read/write random-access to very large datasets. HBase is a non relational database that allows for low latency, quick lookups in Hadoop. It adds transactional capabilities to Hadoop It is a distributed column-oriented database built on top of HDFS. HBase is modeled with an HBase master node orchestrating a cluster of one or more region server slaves. The HBase master is responsible for bootstrapping a virgin install, for assigning regions to registered region servers, and for recovering region server failures. The region servers carry zero or more regions and field client read/write requests.
Hadoop is an opensource system to liably store and process data across many commodity computers HBase and Hadoop are written in Java A hadoop data storage A No SQL store for big data It is open source written in java It is distributed database Automatic Sharding , table data spread over cluster Automatic region server fail over
No real indexes rows are stored sequentially as are the columns within each row therefore no issues with index bloat Insert performance is independent of table size Automatic partitioning (As table grows they will automatically be split into regions across all available nodes) Scale linearly with new nodes Commodity hard ware Data in billions of rows Complex data High volume of I/O High level of data nodes , more than 5 No need of extra RDBMS functions i.e transactions
for distributed storage Data stored across region servers Region server data spread across HDFS data nodes A write ahead log (WAL) is used to record changes Table is made of regions Region – a range of rows stored together Single shard, used for scaling Dynamically split as they become too big and merged if too small Region Server serves one or more regions A region is served by only 1 Region Server Master Server daemon responsible for managing HBase cluster, aka Region Servers HBase stores its data into HDFS relies on HDFS's high availability and fault-tolerance features HBase utilizes Zookeeper for distributed coordination
to run client supplied code in the address space of the server Counters Compactions Strictly consistent reads and writes. Automatic and configurable sharding of tables Automatic failover support between RegionServers. Convenient base classes for backing Hadoop MapReduce jobs with Apache HBase tables. Easy to use Java API for client access. Block cache and Bloom Filters for real-time queries. Query predicate push down via server side Filters Thrift gateway and a REST-ful Web service that supports XML, Protobuf, and binary data encoding options Extensible jruby-based (JIRB) shell Support for exporting metrics via the Hadoop metrics subsystem to files or Ganglia; or via JMX
as a NoSQL database NoSQL is a term often used to refer to non-relational databases. For instance, Graph databases, Object-Oriented databases, Key-Value data stores or Columnar databases. All of them are NoSQL databases. whereas HBase is very much a distributed database. HBase is a Columnar data store, also called Tabular data store. The main difference of a column-oriented database compared to a row-oriented database (RBMS) is about how data is stored in disk.
Rows, each which has a primary key(row key). Each Row may have any number of columns. Table schema only defines Column Families(column family can have any number of columns) Each cell value has a timestamp.
rows Rows are referenced by a unique key Key is an array of bytes Anything can be a key: string, long and your own Rows made of columns which are grouped in column families Data is stored in cells Identified by row x column family x column Cell's content is also an array of bytes serialized data structures “CNN” “CNN”.com “<html>” “<html>” “<html>” t3 t5 t6 t9 t8 “contents” “anchor:cnnsi.com” “anchor:my.look.ca” “com.cnn.www Column Family Row Key TimeStamp Value

distributed file system that is well suited for the storage of large files.HBase, on the otherhand, is built on top of HDFS and provides fast record lookups (and updates) for large tables.

You can match columns using filters and select versions using time ranges, specifying start and end times. This is how row is stored as key/value.
