In our today’s Linux aaticle we are going to demonstrate the installation and configuration of fully distributed hbase cluster on CentOS 7. Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, non-relational database modeled after Google’s Bigtable. HBase is a column-oriented database management system that runs on top of HDFS and Hadoop. It is well suited for sparse data sets, which are common in many big data use cases. Unlike relational database systems, HBase does not support a structured query language like SQL; in fact, HBase isn’t a relational data store at all.
