Hadoop World: Talking HBase with Facebook’s Jonathan Gray

November 16, 2011

At Hadoop World, Facebook’s Jonathan Gray gave two talks: HBase Roapmap, and Building Realtime Big Data Services at Facebook with Hadoop and HBase.  While I wasn’t able to attend the sessions, at the end of the conference I was able to catch up with the man himself.

Here’s what he had to say:

Some of the ground Jonathan covers

  • How Jonathan got involved with HBase and how Facebook uses it
  • (1:00) Where does HBase fit in the big data ecosystem
  • (1:54) HBase vs MySQL
  • (2:44) The HBase community and where the committers reside
  • (5:35) What is Jonathan looking forward to in HBase (the “HBase DBA”)

Extra-credit reading

Pau for now…
