Speakers: Kevin O'Dell, Aleksandr Shulman & Kathleen Ting (Cloudera)
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.
