Description

Bloomberg is a financial data and analytics provider, so data management is core to what we do. There's tremendous diversity in the type of data we manage, and HBase is a natural fit for many of these datasets - from the perspective of the data model as well as in terms of a scalable, distributed database. This talk covers data and analytics use cases at Bloomberg and operational challenges around HA. We'll explore the work currently being done under HBASE-10070, further extensions to it, and how this solution is qualitatively different to how failover is handled by Apache Cassandra.
