I'm planning to use a NoSQL distributed database.
I did some searching and came across a lot of database systems such as
MongoDB, CouchDB, Hbase, Cassandra, Hypertable, etc.
Since what I'll be doing is frequently reading a varying amount of data, and
less frequently writing a massive amount of data,
I thought Hbase, or Hypertable is the way to go.
I did some internet and found some performance comparison between HBase and
Obviously HT dominated Hbase in every aspect (random read/write and a couple
But the comparison was made with Hbase 0.20.4, and Hbase had much
improvements since the current version is 0.90.3.
I am curious if the performance gap is still large between Hbase and HT.
I am running Hadoop already so I wanted to go with Hbase but the performance
gap was so big that it made me reconsider.
Any opinions please?
