column family

column family

A group of multiple columns in an HBase table. HBase users can group columns based on appropriate logic to provide boundaries between the data. An HBase table has at least one column family, which is a collection of all the columns in the table. The column family name is the prefix for all the column names in that column family for unique identification.
