HBase: Extreme Makeover

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.
