Overall Satisfaction with HBase

We use HBase as a secondary data store. We chose it mainly for its strongly consistent data model, and scalability. It has a pretty good documentation and a strong and active developer community that is still growing. The main downside is its many moving parts and operational overhead of deploying and managing clusters.


  • Scalability
  • Strong consistency
  • SQL layer


  • Too many processes
  • Difficult to manage many clusters
  • Good ROI
  • Highly available
HBase continues to meet our needs, and we look forward to further development on it.
HBase is a good choice if you're looking for a scaleable, strongly consistent data store that supports both OLTP and some OLAP as well.
