HBaseCon – Low Latency “OLAP” with HBase

with 9 comments

HBaseCon 2012

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.

  1. Hope to see a proper writeup on this stack sometime. I’ve seen a few of the slidedecks you’ve had here and there, but would love more details sometime.

    Good luck!

  4. Great presentation! What tool do you use for interactive reporting? As per what I understand, HBase is not the best tool for that.

    Is there any open source version for this?

  5. Thanks Rick! The platform also has the query engine (mentioned in the slides). It allows for low latency queries supporting filtering, rollups, etc. For charting, generally each clients has it’s own dashboard/reporting UIs customised to the business logic.

    It’s not open-source yet.
