Using Apache HBase
Apache HBase is the Apache Hadoop database. Apache HBase is based on the wide column data store model with a table as the unit of storage. A table consists of one or more column families. Apache HBase is a schema-free NoSQL database. HBase stores data in the HDFS by default. In this chapter we shall use a Docker image to run Apache HBase in a Docker container. We shall use the svds/cdh Docker image, which we introduced in the Chapter 8.
