"Structured storage is "computer storage for "structured data, often in the form of a "distributed database.[1] "Computer software formally known as structured storage systems include "Apache Cassandra,[2] "Google's "Bigtable[3] and "Apache HBase.[4]


The following is a comparison of notable structured storage systems.
