    HBase: Extreme Makeover
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Video, Presentation
    This talks introduces a totally new implementation of a multilayer caching in HBase called BigBase. BigBase has a big advantage over HBase 0.94/0.96 because of an ability to utilize all available server RAM in the most efficient way, and because of a novel implementation of a L3 level cache on fast SSDs. The talk will show that different type of caches in BigBase work best for different type of workloads, and that a combination of these caches (L1/L2/L3) increases the overall performance of HBase by a very wide margin.

    HBase at Xiaomi
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Video, Presentation
    This talk covers the HBase environment at Xiaomi, including thoughts and practices around latency, hardware/OS/VM configuration, GC tuning, the use of a new write thread model and reverse scan, and block index optimization. It will also include some discussion of planned JIRAs based on these approaches.

    Cross-Site BigTable using HBase
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Video, Presentation
    As HBase continues to expand in application and enterprise or government deployments, there is a growing demand for storing data across geographically distributed datacenters for improved availability and disaster recovery.

    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.

    Tales from the Cloudera Field
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: Presentation Slides, HBaseCon
    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.

    Taming HBase with Apache Phoenix and SQL
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: Video, HBaseCon, Presentation
    Come learn about the fundamentals of Apache Phoenix and how it hides the complexities of HBase while giving you optimal performance, and hear about new features from our recent release, including updatable views that share the same physical HBase table and n-way equi-joins through a broadcast hash join mechanism.
