Yahoo has long been involved in HBase and its community. In 2013, HBase was offered as a hosted service at Yahoo. Since then, adoption has grown rapidly., and today, HBase is used by numerous teams across the company, helping to enable a diverse set of use cases ranging from near real-time processing to data warehousing.
This was made possible thanks to HBase along with some enhancements to support multi-tenancy and scale. As our clusters continue to grow and use cases become more demanding we are working towards supporting a million regions in a single cluster.
In this keynote, we’ll paint a picture of where Yahoo! is today and the enhancements we have been working on to reach today’s scale as well as supporting a million regions and beyond.
