HBaseCon 2013 | Apache HBase on Flash

Flash Memory technology deployed as server-side PCIe or SSDs is emerging as a critical tool for performance and efficiency in data centers at all scales. This presentation from Matt Kennedy of Fusion-io explains how Flash impacts HBase deployments in terms of configuration, DRAM requirements, and performance.

What is Flash? Flash is a persistant memory technology. Kennedy powers his lecture with the quote, "Switch your database to Flash or you're doing it wrong" in order to ultimately convince the validity of the quote and to address the issues we see with databases that didnt have the advance of coming along at a time when Flash was prevelant. The integration of Flash and Fusion-io impacts HBase deployments necesarry for configuration and performance.
