HBase at Yfrog

Even if the Yfrog presentation on their usage of HBase has only 9 slides, you’ll find some very interesting notes in there. Here’s a couple that caught my eyes:

  • 10k concurrent requests/second
  • 4 HBase clusters ranging from 50TB to 1PB
  • Having more smaller nodes is better than having less faster bigger nodes
  • We use sub $1k desktop grade servers, they work great![1]
  • Inexpensive 2TB Hitachi disks (~$100) work great, get more units for your money
  • Load test HBase with YCBS: just leave it running for a week, if nothing crashes, you are good.

Make sure you are checking all the slides below.

  1. This is the first example I’m reading where commodity hardware means desktop grade hardware
