HBase master Jonathan Hsieh provides a complete overview of Apache HBase operations in this course designed for the absolute beginner. He begins with setting up and deploying an actual HBase cluster where you'll receive hardware and software recommendations, learn to use the Cloudera manager to configure values, and do rolling restarts.
After that, you'll troubleshoot and debug a distributed cluster; learn about HBase tuning and optimization; study HBase access control, security, and disaster recovery procedures; and finish with an overview of the HBase ecosystem where you'll learn about HBase integration, the Thrift and Rest HBase proxy servers, and more. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with Jonathan Hsieh throughout the lessons.
Jonathan Hsieh has been a Tech Lead at Cloudera since 2009. He is an Apache HBase Committer, an Apache Flume Founder, a speaker at Strata Hadoop Conferences, and the author of the O'Reilly title Building Apache HBase Applications. He holds a BS and MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering and an MS in Computer Science. He's also a self-described ski bum who just happens to hold or co-hold four U.S. patents.
