We’ve been building on, fixing and deploying HBase for the last 4 years. We’ve written about why we’re using HBase but not much about what for.
Tomorrow, at HBaseCon, I’ll be talking about our low latency OLAP platform built on top of HBase. I’ll cover both functional and technical aspects of the system and go through some of the strategies that we use to provide high-throughput, real-time OLAP queries.
If you’re attending the conference we hope to see you there.
Update: here are the slides, video should come soon.
