An Amazing Experience

  • As Hbase is a noSql database, here we don't have transaction support and we cannot do many operations on the data.
  • Not having the feature of primary or a composite primary key is an issue as the architecture to be defined cannot be the same legacy type. Also the transaction concept is not applicable here.
  • The way data is printed on console is not so user-friendly. So we had to use some abstraction over HBase (eg apache phoenix) which means there is one new component to handle.

  • Negative ROI has been on hardware usage. When used frequently, we have had constant disk failures. As a result, it requires HDD replacements.
  • But with disk failures, HA is available, however, to a certain extent.
  • Large datasets helped causality issues to be mitigated.

  • It supports the near real-time use cases when integrated with Spark Streaming.
  • It helps to store huge volume of records with consistent reads/writes.
  • Maintenance is the pain point as it requires some maintenance and monitoring of regional servers and nodes

Return on Investment

  • We were able to scale our application from 5TB running in a relational database to 20TB on top of HBase
  • Application availability was always high even with half of the nodes having hardware issues
  • HBase can be used with standard mechanical harddrive storage. There's no need for fancy SAN or NAS storage with HBase which is almost always expensive.
