HBase Connector

posted Jan 23, 2012, 3:54 PM by James Kraemer

Data Intelligence has released an integrated HBase connector for the Entity Analytical Platform.  The connector writes Entity Links in real-time to the HBase Big Data store.

The HBase/Hadoop environment allows data scientists to perform their own Big Data analytics over the entity graph.  HBase allows the Entity Analytical Platform to scale to bigger graphs and bigger data.

We used the HBase Java client to connect directly to HBase.  The HBase connector is configurable and can be turned on and off.  The HBase Big Data store is not a requirement to run the Entity Analytical Platform but we encourage your organization to give it a try.  

Future Hadoop features will include work with graph-processing platforms and taking advantage of large HBase tables that expand to millions of columns.
