Just wanted to ask the community their thoughts on how to go about producing this system:
We have a cluster containing HBase with a bunch of data on it. We've produced a web app using Django and want to connect it to HBase. We want to use form validation on the web app side and send data and retrieve data from HBase.
Would be advise using HBase as the total backend? Or should we use an SQL database backend still inbetween somehow? Any concerns or advise on doing this? We also use Hive - should we utilise that with the web app?
