What we're about
HBase is a robust, scalable, distributed, column-oriented store capable of hosting billions of row of sparse, structured data. HBase is open source and part of the Hadoop project.
This meeting is for users and developers. Discussions will be around the most recent release of HBase, any issues users are having, and to help plan for the next release.
Definitely come if you're a current user of HBase; or if your company has plans for a huge data store and you're evaluating solutions.
