Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

On Monday, Hortonworks' HBase team released HBase 96. According to the team, over 2,000 issues were corrected in this update, and a lot of big improvements have been made. Notable changes include:

  • Reduce Mean-Time-To-Recovery
  • Support for MS Windows
  • Data type flexibility
  • Modularization

For more details, check out Hortonworks' full announcement, and take a look at Apache's HBase blog as well. There are updates, and then there are updates, and this one appears to be in the latter category. A lot of work went into HBase 96, and by the breadth of changes that were made, it shows.

Hortonworks Community Connection (HCC) is an online collaboration destination for developers, DevOps, customers and partners to get answers to questions, collaborate on technical articles and share code examples from GitHub.  Join the discussion.
