What is Hypertable

Hypertable is an open source database inspired by publications on the design of Google’s BigTable. Hypertable runs on top of a distributed file system such as the Apache Hadoop DFS, GlusterFS, or the Kosmos File System (KFS). It is written almost entirely in C++ for performance.
