    Hi,
    HBase is a column-oriented database management system that runs on top of HDFS.Unlike relational database systems, HBase does not support a structured query language like SQL; in fact, HBase isn’t a relational data store at all. HBase applications are written in Java much like a typical MapReduce application. HBase does support writing applications in Avro, REST, and Thrift. Thanks for sharing me great information.
