SQL to NoSQL migration

NoSQL challenges

The limits of traditional SQL data models are now well documented, and NoSQL databases bring in much needed flexibility. No need to over-engineer the original design any more as adding new fields and data sources becomes a child’s game.

Still NoSQL remains an unknown beast for many enterprise practicioners. They oft remain unconfortable with NoSQL data modeling principles and try to force in their SQL design habits onto this new bread of databases.

An “ORM” for HBase

HFactory Tools fundamentally simplifies the adoption of a wide-column NoSQL database by providing storage abstraction for HBase. The solution handles the database persistence, fully manages the data serialization process and exposes data in the familiar JSON format via a RESTful interface. In other words, you can simply think of it as a Hibernate-like system specifically built for the Apache HBase NoSQL database.
