The Lily Data Repository provides a high-level, easy-to-use and schema-based data model and API on top of Apache HBase and real-time, robust indexing into Apache Solr. It's the open source foundation platform of Lily Enterprise, the Big Data Consumer Intelligence solution from NGDATA.


The Lily Data Repository requires Java 1.6. The download comes with standalone, runnable versions of Hadoop/Zookeeper/HBase and Solr for testing and development, but Lily is designed to run in a distributed environment. Setup tools for cluster installation are part of Lily Enterprise.
