Yes, for reasons we don't understand, HBase is a little more popular and 
better known than AsterixDB.  :-)

More seriously, has 
most/all of the AsterixDB publications, which may help.  They are VERY 
different systems - AsterixDB is essentially what you get if you 
approach the document database problem from the standpoint of giving 
users "everything" they would get in a parallel relational DBMS but with 
a relaxed (and you can tune how relaxed) data model - no 1NF 
requirement, no schema mandate, ordered as well as unordered options for 
multivalued fields, etc. - and a full query language (first AQL, 
nowadays SQL++) that can do everything you can do in SQL92 and more (in 
order to accommodate the data model changes).
