Mapping Apache Phoenix schemas to Apache HBase namespaces

You can map a Apache Phoenix schema to an Apache HBase namespace to gain multitenancy features in Apache Phoenix.

Apache HBase namespaces are a logical grouping of tables, similar to a database in a relational database system. Apache HBase, the underlying storage engine for Apache Phoenix, has namespaces to support multi-tenancy features. Multitenancy helps an Apache HBase user or administrator to perform access control and quota management tasks. Namespaces enable tighter control of where a particular data set is stored on the Apache HBase RegionsServers.
