First of all, I'll start by saying that this book is a bit of a confused mashup between HBase and Apache Phoenix. At the very least the book should have Phoenix mentioned in its title, since almost every interaction in the book with HBase is actually being done through Phoenix. The author seems to assume that Phoenix is merely a SQL layer over HBase and that other than providing a SQL-like API, it doesn't change the essence of how you work with HBase. He doesn't even mention, when discussing bulk-loading into HBase, that if you don't bulk-load through phoenix, phoenix indexes won't get updated.
That many-to-many relationships discussion in the Advanced Patterns for Data Modeling is best described as irritating. Two of the provided examples use standard DDI concepts to denormalize the data. However, there is no discussion about how to get this data out once it's in. Certainly it can't be done with phoenix, maybe that's why the author provided no examples. So what happened to initial discussion about phoenix as the suggested way of accessing all your HBbase data? Another example uses "index tables", which are actually junction tables, which as it is modelled would probably force any query to join the data in the index table with the data in the users table, a practice which the author previously stated was poor design.Read more ›
I also thought it interesting that the author presented a number of tools and software packages for the reader to use to help in the lab work. Some of these are quite interesting in themselves like Kiji and Apache Phoenix.
There was also some practical discussion of deployment aspects like Amazon costs and using older versions of Linux for better HBase support.
This book doesn't cover HBase in detail but is more geared into some common table design patterns.
There is also a good practical discussion of storing large files in HBase as well as methods to import data and their associated performance.
This book is good for someone already familiar with HBase and wants a more practical guide to table design and considerations as well as for someone that is new to HBase but is familiar with relational design.
