Apache HBase™ is the Hadoop database, a distributed, scalable, big data store. Use Apache HBase when you need random, realtime read/write access to your Big Data. This project's goal is the hosting of very large tables -- billions of rows X millions of columns -- atop clusters of commodity hardware. Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, non-relational database modeled after Google's Bigtable

This talk will introduce to Apache HBase and will give you an overview of Columnar databases. We will also talk about how Facebook, Twitter and EBay are using HBase currently. We introduce some concepts like rowkey design and hotspotting
