HBaseCon 2013: "Operations" Track Preview

Categories: Community Events HBase

As you have probably learned by now, HBaseCon 2013 sessions are organized into four tracks: Operations, Internals, Ecosystem, and Case Studies. In combination, they offer a 360-degree view of Apache HBase that is invaluable for experts and aspiring experts alike. In the next few posts leading up to the conference (June 13 in San Francisco – register now while there’s still room), we’ll offer sneak previews of what each track has to offer.

First up is the Operations track, which will be hosted by Facebook’s Liyin Tang (HBase PMC Member and HBaseCon keynote speaker):

The sessions in this track focus on the deployment, operation, and management of Apache HBase. You will learn about best practices for cluster deployment, monitoring, mitigating failures, security, and other aspects of running HBase for business-critical applications.
