Description

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. The Cross-Site BigTable extends HBase to make it well-suited for such deployments, providing the capabilities of creating and accessing HBase tables that are partitioned and asynchronously backed-up over a number of distributed datacenters. This talk reveals how the Cross-Site BigTable manages data access over multiple datacenters and removes the data center itself as a single point of failure in geographically distributed HBase deployments.
