HBase Client and MapR-DB Binary Tables

MapR 6.0.x and MapR 6.1 provide Apache HBase-compatible APIs and client interfaces but do not support HBase as an ecosystem component. MapR-DB binary tables provide native storage for table data and include high performance and availability, versatile table operations, and streamlined cluster administration. The following APIs and tools are available for MapR-DB binary tables:
HBase Client
HBase REST Gateway
HBase Thrift 1 Gateway
