Big Data Meetup: Hands-on with HBase

Join us on Tuesday, July 30th at 5:30pm in Foster City!

Rapidly gaining in popularity, maturity and footprint is the HBase NoSQL datastore.  Apache HBase is known as the Hadoop Database and is included in IBM's InfoSphere BigInsights product.  HBase is typically deployed on clusters of Linux x86 servers running on top of Apache Hadoop's HDFS.  HBase clusters scale seamlessly as new nodes are added to the system.  Cost is dramatically reduced,and the big data challenges often found in Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMs) are solved with HBase (e.g. sharding is automatic and sparse data records supported).  Whereas existing RDBMSs can manage terabytes of data and support thousands of queries per second, HBase can easily support petabytes of data and millions of queries per second!


If you're considering HBase for your data storage needs, learning about the HBase data model and architecture is critical.  This Meetup will give you hands-on HBase experience.  You will go through the basics of how to install HBase, create schemas and tables, query your data, backup your tables, manage, monitor and tune HBase.  You’ll also learn about the various client options including Big SQL and Hive.

This Meetup is FREE.  Food and beverages will be provided. Please bring your laptop to participate in the hands-on lab.   Download BigInsights Quick Start Edition before the event: http://ibm.co/QuickStart

Agenda:

5:30-6:30: Networking (Food & Beverages provided)

6:30-7:15: Presentation

7:15-9:30: Hands-on with HBase

    Nicolas, Rafael, Bruce - thanks for a great meetup. I had attended the previous "BigInsights Coming Soon!" in April/May and was looking forward to this level of detail. Bruce, I, and I speak for all participants, really appreciate you devoting time individually with everyone during the hands on session. It was really very well executed. Suggestion for the next meetup - would love to see a deep dive into a use case.

      Is the Quick Start for Linux or Windows? Is it for installing on laptop?

    • Nicolás M.

      if you're running the VM, you need VMplayer. That can run on Windows or Linux.
