Since many will be in town for Strata in Santa Clara during the last week of February, and the Intel Mission campus is a mere few minutes by car from the venue, Intel has graciously offered room for ~100, along with the usual meetup accompaniments.
If you are in town for Strata and would like to learn more about HBase, current events in HBase-land, or meet HBasers, please stop by. If you are doing something interesting with HBase, we'd love to give you a great venue to share it. Please write me or another organizer if you have some hbasing you'd like to talk about. There are a few slots available.
On the agenda so far
- Lars Hofhansl from Salesforce will talk about performance enhancements, and optimizations and important internal changes (MIN_VERSIONS, KEEP_DELETED_CELLS, Coprocessor API improvements, and such) made to HBase internals in support of Salesforce use cases.
- James Taylor from Salesforce will talk about their newly released Phoenix SQL layer for HBase. Phoenix is in use for lots of different use cases and product areas at Salesforce, including product metrics, data archival, server metrics and monitoring, trending over time-series data, and reporting.
- Intel folks will talk about work they are doing on extending the HBase security model to support per cell ACLs, and transparent encryption with AES-NI, and an encryption codec framework for Hadoop Core and MapReduce.
