Who This Book Is For
This book is intended for developers and Big Data engineers who want to know all about HBase at a hands-on level. For in-depth understanding, it would be helpful to have a bit of familiarity with HDFS and MapReduce programming concepts with no prior experience with HBase or similar technologies. This book is also for Big Data enthusiasts and database developers who have worked with other NoSQL databases and now want to explore HBase as another futuristic, scalable database solution in the Big Data space.
With an example-oriented approach, this book begins by providing you with a step-by-step learning process to effortlessly set up HBase clusters and design schemas. Gradually, you will be taken through advanced data modeling concepts and the intricacies of the HBase architecture. Moreover, you will also get acquainted with the HBase client API and HBase shell. Essentially, this book aims to provide you with a solid grounding in the NoSQL columnar database space and also helps you take advantage of the real power of HBase using data scans, filters, and the MapReduce framework. Most importantly, the book also provides you with practical use cases covering various HBase clients, HBase cluster administration, and performance tuning.
