HBase for Azure HDInsight

Now available This is now generally available.

Date updated: 15 May 2017

HBase will be an Apache open source NoSQL database built on Hadoop that'll provide random access and strong consistency for large amounts of unstructured and semi-structured data. HBase for HDInsight will be offered as a managed cluster integrated into the Azure environment. The clusters will be configured to store data directly in Azure Blob storage, providing low latency and increased elasticity in performance and cost choices. This will enable customers to build interactive websites that work with large datasets, build services that store sensor and telemetry data from millions of end points, and analyze this data with Hadoop jobs.
