I spent last week in NYC at this year’s Strata+Hadoop World, where I was invited to speak. The title of this talk is the same as the talk I gave at the Big Data Deep Dive in May, but the content received a thorough overhaul. Thanks to all the attendees and friends who give me great advice on this first go-around. Hopefully the improvements were helpful.
Both the conference and the material are a little bit higher level – the best compliment I received was “I learned a bunch about HBase and my boss did too!” The biggest difference from the previous talk is the addition of some example application architectures which include HBase. I also provide a rough sketch of which configurations you might tune in which direction in order to achieve different performance characteristics. Once again, my slides are available, and also embedded here.
