HBase is an
open-source, nonrelational, distributed database modeled after Google's
BigTable and is written in Java. It is developed as part of Apache Software
Foundation's Apache Hadoop project and runs on top of the Hadoop Distributed
Filesystem (HDFS), providing BigTable-like capabilities for Hadoop. It provides
a fault-tolerant way of storing large quantities of sparse data.
program committee is comprised of Apache HBase project management committee
(PMC) members who are developing a line-up of educational talks and workshops
that will share practical insights as well as illustrative use cases. Attendees
can look forward to general sessions in the morning and an afternoon comprised
of three tracks focused on: development, operations and applications for HBase.
Its going to
be a great day out for the community, said Michael Stack, engineer at
StumbleUpon and champion of the HBase community. Anyone with any kind of an
HBase itch at all whether apps, ops or dev should be sure to drop by. Our goals
with HBaseCon are to give the attendees a platform for connecting with their
peers and sharing experiences with this technology and to ultimately advance
the development of HBase.
The theme of
this first HBaseCon is Real-Time Your Hadoop, and the conference will be a
culmination of the best of the community and will include speakers and sponsors
from across the HBase landscape, Cloudera said. This event is all about
bringing together the great and inquiring minds that use HBase and strengthening
community support, Todd Lipcon, software engineer at Cloudera and Apache HBase
committer, said in a statement.
There is a
whole ecosystem being created around HBase, and the community is thriving and
incredibly involved, Lars George, solutions architect for Cloudera and author
