The Apache HBase Ecosystem
Aaron Kimball, Chief Architect, WibiData
Today, HBase stands as Apache Hadoop did years ago, a project with a growing and vibrant community in its own right. In this talk, Aaron will overview some of the projects built on top of HBase that you’ll get a chance to learn about during the day – each of these projects having grown out of a need to use HBase for an application that requires real-time atomic access to data. As an example, he’ll present the motivations for Kiji and how it is helping organizations create amazing new applications using HBase and Hadoop.
