Orchestrating SQL and APIs with Apache Phoenix
Apache Phoenix is a SQL abstraction layer for interacting with Apache HBase and other Hadoop components. Phoenix lets you create and interact with tables in the form of typical DDL/DML statements via its standard JDBC API. With the driver APIs, Phoenix translates SQL to native HBase API calls.
Consequently, Phoenix provides a SQL skin for working with data and objects stored in the NoSQL schema of HBase.
This Phoenix documentation focuses on interoperability with HBase. For more information about Phoenix capabilities, see the Apache Phoenix website.
