NoSQL HBase and Hadoop with Todd Lipcon from Cloudera
We talked about NoSQL and how it should stand for “Not Only SQL” and the tight integration between Hadoop and HBase and how systems like Cassandra (which is eventually consistent and not strongly consistent like HBase) is complementary as these systems have applicability within big data eco system depending on your use cases.
With the strong consistency of HBase you get features like incrementing counters and the tight integration with Hadoop means faster loads with HDFS thanks to a new feature in the 0.89 development preview release in the doc folders called “bulk loads”.
We covered a lot more unique features, talked about more of what is coming in upcoming releases as well as some tips with HBase so subscribe to the podcast and listen to all of what Todd had to say.
