hbase vs accumulo

Expert Contributor

Hi,

I read that accumulo supports cell level security, and hbase doesn't. Is this true?

and secondly accumulo supports multiple data sources ingestion better and hbase one source such as one web site. is it true? in what ways?

can someone share any accumulo case studies? Can accumulo be used with full support and rest of hadoop ecosystem?

Thanks,

Avijeet

Re: hbase vs accumulo

"I read that accumulo supports cell level security, and hbase doesn't. Is this true?"

Both systems support cell-level security; however, I would say that Accumulo's is a more "battle-hardened" implementation. I'm not aware of any case studies behind comparing the two implementations.

"and secondly accumulo supports multiple data sources ingestion better and hbase one source such as one web site. is it true? in what ways?"

No, I don't know in what way this would be possible. Both systems can ingest data from a variety of sources. This sounds like something was taken out of context.

"can someone share any accumulo case studies?"

http://accumulo.apache.org/papers/ has some content, http://www.pdl.cmu.edu/SDI/2013/slides/big_graph_nsa_rd_2013_56002v1.pdf, https://arxiv.org/abs/1406.4923, and http://accumulo.apache.org/papers/accumulo-benchmarking-2.1.pdf are each interesting. This talk from PHEMI by Russ Weeks is also particularly nice http://accumulosummit.com/program/talks/preventing-bugs-how-phemi-put-accumulo-to-work-in-the-field/

"Can accumulo be used with full support and rest of hadoop ecosystem?"

In short, "yes", but this is subjective due to what you consider the "rest of hadoop ecosystem" and what degree of integration you're expecting. The same goes for HBase. As for HDP, yes, both HBase and Accumulo are fully supported as Tim pointed out already. I would suggest you ask more pointed questions if you have specific concerns.

Re: hbase vs accumulo

Super Guru

HBase has more developers and Phoenix and more support at this point.

Accumulo has some cool features and is a fully supported piece of Hadoop / Hortonworks Data Platform.

Also look and see what you might run on top of it

https://twitter.com/ApacheFluo runs on Accumulo

http://opentsdb.net/ runs on HBase

HBase has column-level security

Do you need cell level security then go with Accumulo.
