HBase Driver for



What is the best way to connect to Cloudera HBase from C#.Net app? Is there any driver available (from Cloudera or others compatible with Cloudera HBase Distribution?


There is one from Azure HDInsight, but not able to connect to CDH HBase, not sure if it works with Azure only.

Re: HBase Driver for

While there isn't a direct "C# connector", HBase offers a REST and Thrift API for connections to its REST or Thrift gateway daemons. You could use these protocols to talk to Thrift via C# or any other supporting languages.
