Hi there,

 

Does HBase support secondary indexes like MongoDB?

Re: secondary index in Hbase

Apache HBase has no inbuilt Secondary Indexes features, but you do have some discussion on the topic over in its docs: http://hbase.apache.org/book.html#secondary.indexes (On the last Coprocessor topic under this, https://github.com/Huawei-Hadoop/hindex may be one example on how to implement it, although am unsure of its current maintained state)

Apache Phoenix (available in Cloudera Labs) also has a doc page on this: https://phoenix.apache.org/secondary_indexing.html
