What is HBase ? What is Hadoop ? How do they compare to the deluge of Not Just SQL tools that have been propagating down from the huge web projects with mega tons of scalable data processing needs.

In this session we will explain the role of hadoop, and hdfs, the framework upon which HBASE is built, and then we will discuss data management in HBase and how it differs from the relational model.
