Features The following table lists various “features” of BigTable and compares them with what HBase has to offer.

Both storage file formats have a similar block oriented structure with the block index stored at the end of the file. The typical size is 64K. The main reason for HBase here is that column family names are used as directories in the file system. Each region server in either system stores one modification log for all regions it hosts.

HBase uses its own table with a single region to store the Root table.

The size is configurable in either system. HBase also implements a row lock API which allows the user to lock more than one row at a time. With both systems you can either set the timestamp of a value that is stored yourself or leave the default “now”.

Back then the current version of Hadoop was 0. Data in Bigtable are maintained in tables that are partitioned into row ranges called tablets. We start though with naming conventions. The maximum 0 size can be configured for HBase and BigTable.

But in your comparisonyou said max allowed Column families are less than Bigtable supports single-row transactions, which can be used to perform atomic read-modify-write sequences on data stored under a single row key, it does not support general transactions unlike a standard RDBMS.

I am offering consulting services in this area and for these products. Apart from that most differences are minor or caused by usage of related technologies since Google’s code is obviously closed-source and therefore only mirrored by open-source projects.

These are for relatively small tables that need very fast access times. That part is fairly easy to understand and grasp. What I personally feel is a bit more difficult is to understand how much HBase covers and where there are differences still compared to the BigTable specification. Each table can have hundreds of column families, and each column family can have an unbounded number of columns.

This may be confusing but it would be difficult to sort them into categories and not ending up with one entry only in each of them. Splitting a region or tablet is fast as the daughter regions first read the original storage file until a compaction finally rewrites the data into the region’s local store.

The most prominent being what HBase calls “regions” while Google refers to it as “tablet”. Both systems recommend about the same amount of regions per region server. I also appreciate you posting the update section clarifying some issues wrt ZooKeeper integration and the work we ZK team have been doing with the HBase team.

Patrick November 30, at It is not entirely clear but it seems everything in BigTable is defined by Locality Groups. It usually means that there is more to tell about how HBase does things because the information is available.

HBase is very bbigtable to what the BigTable paper describes. One of the key tradeoffs made by the Bigtable designers was going for a general design by leaving many performance decisions to its users. Before we embark onto the dark technology side of things I would like to point out one thing upfront: The clients in either system caches the location of regions and has appropriate mechanisms to detect stale information and update the local cache respectively.

View my complete profile. Versioning is done using timestamps. This is a design trade-off but does not impose too much restrictions if the tables and key are designed accordingly. HBase bigtabl an open-source implementation of the Google BigTable architecture. What was not really clear to me is how Jeff Dean speaks about corruption issues and what they mean for the Hadoop stack. Anonymous November 25, at 8: Contact me at info larsgeorge.

BigTable enforces access control on a column family level. BigTable uses Sawzall to enable users to process the bgtable data. Reading it it does not seem to indicate what BigTable does nowadays. Or should there be more effort spent on finding out if bigyable is more work to be done?

There are “known” restrictions in HBase bgitable the outcome is indeterminate when adding older timestamps after already having stored newer ones beforehand.

I believe it is general enough to survive until today as back-end for many of their newer services. Bigtable uses Chubby to manage active server, to discover tablet servers, to store Bigtable metadata, and above all, as the root of a three-level tablet location hierarchy. The closest to such a mechanism is the atomic access to each row in the lsdi. Of course this depends on many things but given a similar setup as far as “commodity” machines are concerned it seems to result in the same amount of load on each server.

Lars this is an awesome post, keep up the good work! Given we are now about 2 years in, with Hadoop 0.
