    • Category: apache hadoop, Open Source Cloudera, Presentation Slides
    The Kite SDK is an open source set of libraries, tools, examples, and documentation focused on helping developers build systems on top of the Apache Hadoop ecosystem. Learn (via examples) how Kite makes it easier to work with data in HDFS and Apache HBase as records and datasets, just as you would with a relational database.

  3. Operations Session 5 - HBase Backups
    • Monday, Jun 16 2014
    • Category: Presentation, Video, HBaseCon
    This talk provides an overview of enterprise-scale backup strategies for HBase: Jesse Yates will describe how Salesforce.com runs backup and recovery on its multi-tenant, enterprise scale HBase deploys; Demai Ni, Songqinq Ding, and Jing Chen of the IBM InfoSphere BigInsights development team will then follow with a description of IBM's recently open-sourced disaster/recovery solution based on HBase snapshots and replication.
  4. Tales from the Cloudera Field - Operations Session 4
    • Monday, Jun 16 2014
    • Category: Presentation, HBaseCon, Video
    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.
  5. Real-time HBase: Lessons from the Cloud - Operations Session 3
    • Monday, Jun 16 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Presentation, Video
    Running HBase in real time in the cloud provides an interesting and ever-changing set of challenges -- instance types are not ideal, neighbors can degrade your performance, and instances can randomly die in unanticipated ways. This talk will cover what HubSpot has learned about running in production on Amazon EC2, how to handle DR and redundancy, and the tooling the team has found to be the most helpful.
  6. HBaseCon 2014 | Harmonizing Multi-tenant HBase Clusters for Managing Workload Diversity -Operations Session 1
    • Thursday, Jun 05 2014
    • Category: HBaseCon, Video, Presentation
    In early 2013, Yahoo! introduced multi-tenancy to HBase to offer it as a platform service for all Hadoop users. A certain degree of customization per tenant (a user or a project) was achieved through RegionServer groups, namespaces, and customized configs for each tenant. This talk covers how to accommodate diverse needs to individual tenants on the cluster, as well as operational tips and techniques that allow Yahoo! to automate the management of multi-tenant clusters at petabyte scale without errors.

    Open source benefits are powerful and time-tested, but they're just “table stakes” when deploying a strategic open source platform like Apache Hadoop -- you'll need so much more from your platform provider.
