Q 1 - Hbase is what type of database?

Q 2 - Each version of data within a cell adds a versioning information through a
Each version of data within a cell contributes one KeyValue instance to the Result.
Q 3 - The method which deletes a specific version within a cell is

Q 5 - In a Map-Side join, we take rows from one table and map it with rows from the other table. The size of one of the table should be
If you join two datasets where at least one of them can fit in memory of the map task,then load the smaller dataset into a hash-table so the map tasks can access it while iterating over the other dataset. In these cases, you can skip the Shuffle and Reduce Steps entirely and emit your final
output from the Map Step.
Q 6 - In the pseudo-distributed mode, Hbase runs on
