Hi John,

If you want to access your HBase data by doing SQL-like(RDBMS) queries then
IMO Phoenix is a good option.
I say so because:
1. Phoenix is a top level Apache project
2. Phoenix is JDBC compliant.
3. Phoenix is built specifically for HBase
4. You will get good community support.

Also, as compared to Hive, Phoenix will provide you much more seamless
experience with HBase. IMO, Hive HBase integration only does basic very
basic stuff.

We have been using Phoenix for around a year and the SQL interface turns
out to be pretty handy as it reduces the learning curve of people migrating
from RDBMS world to NoSql world.

Obviously, i didn't provide you whole lot of options. Maybe, other people
can share their experience with other software's. Hope this helps.
