PowerExchange for HBase Overview

PowerExchange for HBase provides connectivity to an HBase data store.
Use PowerExchange for HBase to read data from the HBase columns families or write data to the columns families in an HBase table. You can read or write data to a column family or a single binary column.
You can connect to an HBase data store and view all the HBase tables. Select an HBase table and view all the column families. If you know the schema of the data source, you can specify the columns in the column families when you create the data object. If you do not know the schema of the data source, you can search the rows in an HBase table to identify the columns and their occurrence probability.
You can validate and run mappings in the native environment or a Hadoop environment.

Example

You work for a mobile service provider that needs to load the data in WAP log files to HBase tables and generate multiple reports. WAP log files can contain a number of columns with information about the mobile users, internet usage, and data volume. On any day, the WAP log files could be three to four billion rows of data and can be around two terabytes in size.
You can use PowerExchange for HBase to consolidate data received during the day, filter and transform the data, and load it to HBase tables. Based on the data in the tables, analysts can run queries and perform real-time analysis of daily operations, statistics related of gateway usage, and data volume.
