Dropbox: Challenges in mirroring large MySQL systems to HBase

A presentation by Todd Eisenberger about the archival system used by Dropbox based on MySQL and HBase:

MySQL benefits:

  • fast queries for known keys over a (relatively) small dataset
  • high read throughput

HBase benetits:

  • high write throughput
  • large suite of pre-existing tools for distributed computation
  • easier to perform large processing tasks

✚ Both are consistent

✚ Most of the benefits in HBase’s section point in the direction of data processing benefits (and not data storage benefits)
