John Sichi and Yongqiang He of Facebook discuss Facebook's recent integration of two related projects in the Hadoop ecosystem: HBase and Hive. This integration gives powerful SQL query capabilities to HBase, and brings the potential for low-latency incremental data refresh to Hive. The talk will go over performance results from initial testing of the integration. Yongqiang will discuss RCFile, which is a columnar storage for Hive. It is already deployed within Facebook, which is in the process of converting old partitions to RCFile. Depending on the data layout, it has resulted in ~20% space savings.
