Logical Storage

Abstract

A cell is the logical storage unit for the Apache HBase data model. Cells are stored individually, and empty cells are not stored at all, which makes HBase storage sparse. Values are stored as an array of bytes. A {row, column, version} tuple specifies a cell in a table. Cells store data as uninterpreted bytes. The timestamp identifies a version and must be unique for each cell.
