Re: Procedural language for HBase?
Looks like the requirement from your company is that there be SQL interface

You can use Hive on top of HBase but the performance wouldn't be as good as

Several companies are developing products which provide SQL interface to
HBase. Namely, Phoenix from Salesforce, Panthera from Intel and Wasp from

This area is quite active at the moment.
