Hadoop started as an offline, batch-processing system. It
made it practical to store and process much larger datasets than
before. Subsequently, more interactive, online systems emerged,
integrating with Hadoop. First among these was HBase, the key/value
store. Now scalable interactive query engines are beginning to join
the Hadoop ecosystem. Realtime is gradually becoming a viable peer to
batch in big data.
