Jim Scott View Bio

Application developers have long created complex schemas to handle storing with minor relationships in an RDBMS. This talk will show how to convert an existing (complicated schema) Music database over to HBase for transactional workloads, plus using Drill against HBase for real-time queries. HBase column families will also be discussed.
