  1. Operations Session 5 - HBase Backups
    • Monday, Jun 16 2014
    • Category: Presentation, Video, HBaseCon
    This talk provides an overview of enterprise-scale backup strategies for HBase: Jesse Yates will describe how Salesforce.com runs backup and recovery on its multi-tenant, enterprise scale HBase deploys; Demai Ni, Songqinq Ding, and Jing Chen of the IBM InfoSphere BigInsights development team will then follow with a description of IBM's recently open-sourced disaster/recovery solution based on HBase snapshots and replication.
  2. Tales from the Cloudera Field - Operations Session 4
    • Monday, Jun 16 2014
    • Category: Presentation, HBaseCon, Video
    From supporting the 0.90.x, 0.92, 0.94, and 0.96 HBase installations on clusters ranging from tens to hundreds of nodes, Cloudera has seen it all. Having automated the upgrade paths from the different Apache releases, we have developed a smooth path that can help the community with upcoming upgrades. In addition to automation best practices, in this talk you'll also learn proactive configuration tweaks and operational best practices to keep your HBase cluster always up and running. We'll also walk through how to contain an application bug let loose in production, to minimize the impact on HBase posed by faulty hardware, and the direct correlation between inefficient schema design and HBase performance.
  3. Real-time HBase: Lessons from the Cloud - Operations Session 3
    • Monday, Jun 16 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Presentation, Video
    Running HBase in real time in the cloud provides an interesting and ever-changing set of challenges -- instance types are not ideal, neighbors can degrade your performance, and instances can randomly die in unanticipated ways. This talk will cover what HubSpot has learned about running in production on Amazon EC2, how to handle DR and redundancy, and the tooling the team has found to be the most helpful.
  4. HBaseCon 2014 | Harmonizing Multi-tenant HBase Clusters for Managing Workload Diversity -Operations Session 1
    • Thursday, Jun 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Video, Presentation
    In early 2013, Yahoo! introduced multi-tenancy to HBase to offer it as a platform service for all Hadoop users. A certain degree of customization per tenant (a user or a project) was achieved through RegionServer groups, namespaces, and customized configs for each tenant. This talk covers how to accommodate diverse needs to individual tenants on the cluster, as well as operational tips and techniques that allow Yahoo! to automate the management of multi-tenant clusters at petabyte scale without errors.
  5. HBase Design Patterns @ Yahoo!
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: Presentation, Video, HBaseCon
    This talk reviews some recurring HBase design patterns at Yahoo! and shares some learnings and experiences.
  6. From MongoDB to HBase in Six Easy Months - Operations Session 6
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: Presentation, Video, HBaseCon
    Pushing well past MongoDB's limits (2TB data every week) is an interesting exercise in operational frustration. It also severely hampers flexibility of design for new use cases. This talk covers the architectural journey from MongoDB/Redis to HBase at Optimizely -- including the performance, design flexibility, speed of implementation, and other gains made. It also covers the operational setup needed to monitor and maintain the system as well as lessons learned from the migration process itself.

    The State of HBase Replication - Operations Session 2
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: Video, HBaseCon, Recorded Webinars
    HBase Replication has come a long way since its inception in HBase 0.89 almost four years ago. Today, master-master and cyclic replication setups are supported; many bug fixes and new features like log compression, per-family peers configuration, and throttling have been added; and a major refactoring has been done. This presentation will recap the work done during the past four years, present a few use cases that are currently in production, and take a look at the roadmap.
  8. Blackbird: Storing Billions of Rows a Couple of Milliseconds Away
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Presentation, Video
    Would you use HBase to make billions of rows available for real-time lookup under 10 ms with 99% guarantee? We, at Rocket Fuel, do just that.

    Data Evolution in HBase
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Presentation Slides
    While the development of this software is often effectively managed through revision control systems, data itself is rarely modeled in a way that affords the same flexibility.
  10. HBase: Just the Basics
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: Video, Presentation, HBaseCon
    A brief Cliff's Notes-level talk covering architecture, API, and schema design
