  1. Smooth Operators Panel - Operations Session 7
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: Video, Presentation, HBaseCon
    Panel discussion with speaker's from Facebook, Pinterest, and Flurry.
  2. HBase: Where Online Meets Low Latency
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Video, Presentation
    HBase is an online database so response latency is critical. This talk will examine sources of latency in HBase, detailing steps along the read and write paths. We'll examine the entire request lifecycle, from client to server and back again.
  3. Bulk Loading in the Wild: Ingesting the World's Energy Data
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: CDH, Presentation, Video
    HBase is designed to store your big data and provide low latency random access to that data. One of its most compelling features is Bulk Loading, which enables the generation of HFiles that can then be passed to the RegionServers. Opower's energy insights platform uses it to ingest the hundreds of millions of meter reads it receives daily from its partner utility companies. This presentation will walk you through the HBase Bulk Loading process and Opower's adoption of it as an important piece of its HBase ecosystem.
  4. New Security Features in Apache HBase 0.98: An Operator's Guide
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Video, Presentation
    HBase 0.98 introduces several new security features: visibility labels, cell ACLs, transparent encryption, and coprocessor framework changes. This talk will cover the new capabilities available in HBase 0.98+, the threat models and use cases they cover, how these features stack up against other data stores in the Apache big data ecosystem, and how operators and security architects can take advantage of them.
  5. 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.
  6. HBase Read High Availability Using Timeline-Consistent Region Replicas
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Video, Presentation
    HBase has ACID semantics within a row that make it a perfect candidate for a lot of real-time serving workloads. However, single homing a region to a server implies some periods of unavailability for the regions after a server crash. Although the mean time to recovery has improved a lot recently, for some use cases, it is still preferable to do possibly stale reads while the region is recovering. In this talk, you will get an overview of our design and implementation of region replicas in HBase, which provide timeline-consistent reads even when the primary region is unavailable or busy.
  7. Design Patterns for Building 360-degree Views with HBase and Kiji
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Video, Presentation
    This talk will introduce the concept of entity-centric storage, discuss what it means, what it enables for businesses, and how to develop an entity-centric system using the open-source Kiji framework and HBase.
  8. OpenTSDB 2.0
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Video, Presentation
    The OpenTSDB community continues to grow and with users looking to store massive amounts of time-series data in a scalable manner. In this talk, we will discuss a number of use cases and best practices around naming schemas and HBase configuration. We will also review OpenTSDB 2.0's new features, including the HTTP API, plugins, annotations, millisecond support, and metadata, as well as what's next in the roadmap.
  9. HBase Data Modeling and Access Patterns with Kite SDK
    • Monday, May 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Video, Presentation
    This talk will focus on Kite's HBase support by covering Kite basics and moving through the specifics of working with HBase as a data source.
