secondary index in Hbase

Hi there,

 

Does HBase support secondary indexes like MongoDB?

Master Guru
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
