Want to learn how to use HBase natively? Curious about how you can exploit HBase from a SQL interface? Follow the exercises in this lab to explore HBase using the HBase shell. Then build on that knowledge to see how to create and query Big SQL tables managed by HBase.
Exercises in this lab include:
• Using the HBase shell (command-line interface) to create tables as well as add, retrieve, and delete data
• Creating, populating, and querying Big SQL tables that store data in HBase
• Exploring options for mapping relational database designs to Big SQL HBase tables
To get started, follow instructions in the first lab module to set up your IBM BigInsights environment for hands-on work.
