HBase in Action has all the knowledge you need to design, build, and run applications using HBase. First, it introduces you to the fundamentals of distributed systems and large scale data handling. Then, you'll explore real-world applications and code samples with just enough theory to understand the practical techniques. You'll see how to build applications with HBase and take advantage of the MapReduce processing framework. And along the way you'll learn patterns and best practices.
About the Technology
HBase is a NoSQL storage system designed for fast, random access to large volumes of data. It runs on commodity hardware and scales smoothly from modest datasets to billions of rows and millions of columns.
About this Book
HBase in Action is an experience-driven guide that shows you how to design, build, and run applications using HBase. First, it introduces you to the fundamentals of handling big data. Then, you'll explore HBase with the help of real applications and code samples and with just enough theory to back up the practical techniques. You'll take advantage of the MapReduce processing framework and benefit from seeing HBase best practices in action.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book covers many interesting and useful topics associated with Hbase. Especially good is schema design part. It is definitely worthy reading.
However, one unfortunate feature of this author is that he always jumps ahead of himself. For example, he presents API code before explaining API. And the same pattern is observed throughout the book.
Another problem is that API is explained poorly, that's why I would not recommend this book for beginners. Read it when you already understand some basics of Hbase.
I work with hbase and cassandra and have always wished to have a cassandra book like this, I.e., a single place for truth.
