Azure HDInsight previewing HBase clusters as a NoSQL database on Azure Blobs!!!

Posted on

On June 3, Microsoft announced an update to HDInsight to support Hadoop 2.4 for 100x faster queries.  Today, we are announcing the preview of Apache HBase clusters inside HDInsight.

HBase is a low-latency NoSQL database that allows online transactional processing (OLTP) of big data. HBase is offered as a managed cluster integrated into the Azure environment. The clusters are configured to store data directly in Azure Blob storage that provides low latency and elasticity between performance and cost. This enables customers to build interactive websites that work with large datasets, to build services that store sensor and telemetry data from millions of end points, and to analyze this data with Hadoop jobs.
