CockroachDB vs HBase: What are the differences?

What is CockroachDB? A cloud-native SQL database for building global, scalable cloud services that survive disasters. Cockroach Labs is the company building CockroachDB, an open source, survivable, strongly consistent, scale-out SQL database.

What is HBase? The Hadoop database, a distributed, scalable, big data store. Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store modeled after Google' Bigtable: A Distributed Storage System for Structured Data by Chang et al. Just as Bigtable leverages the distributed data storage provided by the Google File System, HBase provides Bigtable-like capabilities on top of Apache Hadoop.

CockroachDB and HBase can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.

HBase is an open source tool with 2.91K GitHub stars and 2.01K GitHub forks. Here's a link to HBase's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, HBase has a broader approval, being mentioned in 54 company stacks & 18 developers stacks; compared to CockroachDB, which is listed in 13 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

        What are some alternatives to CockroachDB and HBase?
        MySQL
        The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.
        Oracle
        Oracle Database is an RDBMS. An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Oracle Database has extended the relational model to an object-relational model, making it possible to store complex business models in a relational database.
        Cassandra
        Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
        MongoDB
        MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
        FoundationDB
        FoundationDB is a NoSQL database with a shared nothing architecture. Designed around a "core" ordered key-value database, additional features and data models are supplied in layers. The key-value database, as well as all layers, supports full, cross-key and cross-server ACID transactions.

        The final output is inserted into HBase to serve the experiment dashboard. We also load the output data to Redshift for ad-hoc analysis. For real-time experiment data processing, we use Storm to tail Kafka and process data in real-time and insert metrics into MySQL, so we could identify group allocation problems and send out real-time alerts and metrics.
