= Proposed Self Contained Change: Apache HBase =

Change owner(s): Robert Rati <rrati at redhat.com>  

Apache HBase [1] 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 
and HDFS. 

== Scope ==
* Proposal owners: The Hbase package has been accepted into Fedora and 
provides all the functionality from the upstream release.
* Other developers: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
* Release engineering: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
* Policies and guidelines: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
