Introducing H-Rider

In the last year and half or so (since I  joined Nice Systems ) we’ve been hard at work building our big data platform based on a  lot of open source technologies including Hadoop and HBase and quite a few others. Building on open source brings a lot of benefits and helps cut development time by building on the knowledge and effort of other.

I personally think that this has to be  two-way street and as a company benefits for open source it should also give something back. This is why I am very happy to introduce Nice’s first (hopefully first of many) contribution back to the open source community. A UI dev tool for working with HBase called h-rider. H-rider offers a convenient user interface to poke around data stored in HBase which our developers find very useful both for development and debugging  

h-rider is developer and maintained by Igor Cher, one of the best developers

Here is some more blurb from the hrider git wiki:

What is h-rider?

The h-rider is a UI application created to provide an easier way to view or manipulate the data saved in the distributed database - HBase™ - that supports structured data storage for large tables.

Getting started

To get started, begin here:

  1. Learn about h-rider by reading the manual.
  2. Download h-rider from the release page (or git clone from the repo)
