    Come join us for an HBase meetup in Palo Alto, kindly hosted by MachineZone (http://www.machinezone.com/), HBase users and makers of Game of War. Food and drink will be provided. TOPICS: An HBase Use Case at Machine Zone: Big Data Visualization By Stephen Yan, Director, Data Platform at Machine Zone Traditional BI visualization tools have been working great together with SQL databases, providing the ability for end users to browse data from different angles. These tools normally extract data from the databases and cache that in a local DB, to reduce the traffic to the live data stores and improve the performance. All of these solutions work well under certain data amounts. Beyond that, the query performance dramatically decreases. One typical limitation is that many such tools are lacking when it comes to clustering, with no meaningful way to scale out, so there is a limit to scale up. This talk will describe the visualization challenges we face at Machine Zone with ever-increasing data amounts using typical BI visualization products, and the approaches we are using by leveraging HBase, Hadoop SQL layer, together with the existing visualization tools to solve this problem. Recent Improvements to Scanners in HBase By Jonathan Lawlor, Software Engineer Intern at Cloudera This talk will focus on recent performance and stability improvements that have been made to Scanners inside HBase. There will be a particular focus on RPC chunking and Scanner heartbeat/keepalive messages, and if time permits, Jonathan will also provide a brief overview of other important changes. Operational analytics using Apache HBase and Apache Drill By Neeraja Rentachintala, Director of Product Management at MapR While flat files are nice, tables are nicer. While insights on large raw datasets are nice, doing such analysis in real time as data becomes available is nicer. With its ability to store wide and sparse datasets coming from heterogeneous applications and perform database style operations to keep the data up-to-date, Apache HBase is becoming increasingly popular as a store that can enable the kind of flexibility people expect out of traditional data warehousing technology. This talk will go into details of integration between Apache Drill and Apache HBase, specifically how Drill can serve as a SQL query layer on HBase and how the flexibility of Drill to directly query self describing and multi-structured data makes it as a very natural tool of choice for analysis on HBase data. LOCATION AND DIRECTIONS How to get to Machine Zone Guests/visitors must enter the Machine Zone office through the security entrance in the back.

  • Strata+Hadoop World Meetup
    Lets have a meetup around Strata+Hadoop World 2015 down in Santa Clara @ Hortonworks HQ. So far, we have the following talks: + Ricardo Jimenez-Peris will tell us about, "LeanXcale: Ultra-Scalable Transactions and SQL for HBase" This talk will present LeanXcale a platform adding ultra-scalable transactions and SQL to HBase, converting HBase into a full-fledged and ultra-scalable full SQL and full ACID database. + Dave Birdsall will give some details on Trafodion, right on the cusp of it's 1.0 release. Trafodion 1.0.0. Trafodion is an enterprise-class transactional SQL engine for the HBase and Hadoop environment. The recent Trafodion 1.0.0 release is a major step in this direction, providing many new production-ready features including a revamped Distributed Transaction Manager (DTM). There is also a host of previews of coming features. This talk will introduce you to Trafodion, describe its many-year heritage, survey its latest features, and describe some future directions. Parking Instructions: When you arrive, drive along the driveway, past the garage, past the Dell building, to the large parking lot. To the far right, along the grass bank, are parking slots reserved for “HW” (Hortonworks). Look for an open “HW” spot and park you car. Or ask the valet in red jacket who will guide you where to park. Tell a valet you're here for a Meetup. From the parking lot, walk back to the Tech Stadium Café, up the short stairs, and adjacent to the Tech Café Stadium, is an outside entrance to Mojave Conference Learning Center. (You’ll notice “Hortonworks Shuttle Pick Up and Drop” signs a the bottom of the short stairs.)

  • HBase+Phoenix developer meetup
    This is a developer meetup to discuss how to extend and navigate the space between HBase private internals and functions Apache Phoenix needs to intercept or override as a complex coprocessor application. Discussions will require a good understanding of both HBase and Phoenix internals. Space is limited so please RSVP only if you are or will be an active contributor. We will hold the meeting at the Salesforce offices in downtown San Francisco. The location might update before next Thursday but will be within a few blocks of 1 Market and nearby the meetup at AppDynamics later in the afternoon.
