So You Added ZooKeeper To Your Stack, Now What?

At this meetup, Camille Fournier, Apache Zookeeper committer and PMC member, will give us intro-level talk about ZooKeeper, why it's useful, and what you should do with it now that you've got it running. She will cover the high-level purpose of ZooKeeper and guarantees that it provides,
as well as covering some of the basic use cases and operational concerns.

About Camille Fournier:

Camille Fournier is the Head of Engineering at Rent the Runway. In her spare time, she hacks distributed systems as a committer and PMC member of the Apache ZooKeeper community.

Why you should attend:
One of the requirements for running Storm or Hadoop cluster is to have a reliable Zookeeper setup. When you’re running a service distributed across a large cluster of machines, even tasks like reading configuration information, which are simple on single-machine systems, can be hard to implement reliably. The ZooKeeper framework was originally built at Yahoo! to make it easy for the company’s applications to access configuration information in a robust and easy-to-understand way, but it has since grown to offer a lot of features that help coordinate work across distributed clusters.
Apache Zookeeper became a de-facto standard for coordination service and used by Storm, Hadoop, HBase, ElasticSearch and other distributed computing frameworks.

Camille is an excellent speaker and I highly recommend to join us at this event.

    Great talk! My one nit pick would be to try to save the questions for the end.

    I am disappointed I won't be able to make it this time. Camille is a great speaker and has deep knowledge about ZK and distributed platforms.

    Any chance it will be recorded for those away? I'm really interested but living in London!

    This should be a good talk. 2-3 comments:

    1) Elasticsearch doesn't really use ZK. It uses its own Zen. Others have made it workable with ZK, but in production we've never seen people run ES with ZK.

    2) Solr (SolrCloud) is not listed above, but it does make heavy use of ZK (e.g. config sharing, cluster/node/shard state sharing, etc.)

    3) We're *just about* to start adding support for ZK monitoring to SPM ( and Storm is high up on our list. If Storm monitoring is of interest, I'd love to know about it :)
