Apache HBase

This Apache project provides a Hadoop database, a distributed, scalable, big data store.
Apache HBase is an open source software specifically designed to be used for when you need real-time, random read and write access to your big data.

Apache HBase's main goal is the storage of very large tables (millions of columns X billions of rows) atop clusters of commodity hardware.

This project provides a distributed, versioned, scalable and column-oriented store, based on Google's Bigtable project. It features linear and modular scalability, strictly consistent reads and writes, configurable and automatic sharding of tables, automatic failover support, and much more.

Apache HBase is designed in such a way that it is capable of providing Bigtable-like capabilities on top of HDFS and Apache Hadoop. It is distributed as a standalone app by the Apache Software Foundation.
