Location: Capital Suite 2/3

What you'll learn

  • Explore the techniques and tools Outbrain has developed to migrate petabyte-scale Hadoop installations to a new cluster


Migrating petabyte-scale Hadoop installations to a new cluster with hundreds of machines, several thousands of jobs daily, and countless ecosystem integrations while maintaining a stable production environment is a challenging task. Add the need to allow active and fast paced continuous deployment with dozens of daily commits to continue on track and maintaining a stable production environment, and it becomes a truly herculean endeavor. Alon Elishkov discusses the techniques and tools Outbrain has developed to achieve this goal.

This session is sponsored by MapR Technologies.
