Overall Satisfaction with HBase

It is used as a data store that consolidates the updates from the upstream key-value store where upstream store only stores the updates that meet the high qps and low latency. HBase is the secondary layer of the storage that consolidate all the updates for a given row key and serves as a upstream for hive table.
  • Good write throughput
  • Good horizontal scalability
  • Easy to operate on
  • Better tool for investigating the key-value content for data validation.
  • Better tool for row key monitoring since our key contains timestamps.
  • Better tool for system-level metric monitoring.
  • Easy to understand the underlying data model and find engineers to leverage and operate it.
  • Easy to look up related issues and corresponding solutions to handle those issues.
Friction to adapt a new service.
Not good for extremely low latency online application, in particular read heavy app.
