HBase vs MariaDB: What are the differences?
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.
What is MariaDB? An enhanced, drop-in replacement for MySQL. Started by core members of the original MySQL team, MariaDB actively works with outside developers to deliver the most featureful, stable, and sanely licensed open SQL server in the industry. MariaDB is designed as a drop-in replacement of MySQL(R) with more features, new storage engines, fewer bugs, and better performance.
HBase and MariaDB can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.
"Performance" is the primary reason why developers consider HBase over the competitors, whereas "Drop-in mysql replacement" was stated as the key factor in picking MariaDB.
HBase and MariaDB are both open source tools. It seems that HBase with 2.91K GitHub stars and 2.01K forks on GitHub has more adoption than MariaDB with 2.82K GitHub stars and 864 GitHub forks.
Grooveshark, Shutterstock, and Geocodio are some of the popular companies that use MariaDB, whereas HBase is used by Pinterest, HubSpot, and Yammer. MariaDB has a broader approval, being mentioned in 496 company stacks & 461 developers stacks; compared to HBase, which is listed in 54 company stacks and 18 developer stacks.
