The open source HPCC Systems platform is a proven, easy to use solution for managing data at scale. Visit our Easy Guide to learn more about this completely free platform, test drive some code in the online Playground, and get started today.
In the last year and half or so (since I joined Nice Systems ) we’ve been hard at work building our big data platform based on a lot of open source technologies including Hadoop and HBase and quite a few others. Building on open source brings a lot of benefits and helps cut development time by building on the knowledge and effort of other.
I personally think that this has to be two-way street and as a company benefits for open source it should also give something back. This is why I am very happy to introduce Nice’s first (hopefully first of many) contribution back to the open source community. A UI dev tool for working with HBase called h-rider. H-rider offers a convenient user interface to poke around data stored in HBase which our developers find very useful both for development and debugging
h-rider is developer and maintained by Igor Cher, one of the best developers
Here is some more blurb from the hrider git wiki:
What is h-rider?
The h-rider is a UI application created to provide an easier way to view or manipulate the data saved in the distributed database - HBase™ - that supports structured data storage for large tables.
To get started, begin here:
- Learn about h-rider by reading the manual.
- Download h-rider from the release page (or git clone from the repo)
