= Proposed Self Contained Change: Apache HBase =
Change owner(s): Robert Rati <rrati(a)redhat.com>
Apache HBase  is a distributed database built on top of Apache Hadoop.
== Detailed Description ==
Apache HBase is used when you need random, realtime read/write access to your
Big Data. Apache HBase hosts very large tables -- billions of rows X millions
of columns -- atop clusters of commodity hardware. Apache HBase is a
distributed, versioned, non-relational database modeled after Google's
Bigtable: A Distributed Storage System for Structured Data by Chang et al.
Just as Bigtable leverages the distributed data storage provided by the Google
File System, Apache HBase provides Bigtable-like capabilities on top of Hadoop
== Scope ==
