The pace of innovation in HBase is rapidly increasing together with its popularity. In this talk, we will take a look at all the development that happened last year for a user level overview of all the recently added features, and releases in HBase. We will talk about the upcoming 1.0 release which is expected to arrive at summer 2014. We will cover which release to choose, binary / wire and source compatibility considerations and how to upgrade between releases. Specifically, we will talk about long list of new features in recent releases including client API changes, new PB based Filter and Coprocessor interfaces, namespaces, per-cell ACLs, region replicas and many other features.


Nick Dimiduk is an HBase committer, PMC, and an author of HBase in Action. He works on the HBase team at Hortonworks where his focus is on usability and performance. His involvement in Hadoop and HBase communities started in 2008 when his nightly ETL jobs were taking 20+ hours. Since then, he has applied Hadoop and HBase to projects over social media, social gaming, click-stream analysis, climatology, and geographic data. Nick also helped establish Seattle’s Scalability Meetup and tried his hand at entrepreneurship.
