The HDInsight team is excited to announce Apache Zeppelin Support for Apache Phoenix. Apache Phoenixis an open source, massively parallel relational database layer built on HBase. Phoenix allows you to use SQL like queries overHBase. Phoenix uses JDBC drivers underneath to enable users to create, delete, alter SQL tables, indexes, views and sequences, upset rows individually and in bulk. Phoenix uses NOSQL native compilation rather than using MapReduce to compile queries, enabling the creation of low-latency applications on top of HBase.
Apache Phoenix enables OLTP and operational analytics in Hadoop for low latency applications by combining the best of both worlds. In Azure HDInsight Apache Phoenix is delivered as a 1st class Open Source framework.
