I recently attended the HBaseCon 2013 conference and talked about building a real-time video analytics platform using Hadoop and HBase.
My presentation is embedded below:

Below is a WYSIWYG tutorial on how to set up a HBase cluster (and Thrift) on Amazon’s Elastic Map Reduce.
In this post (hopefully the first of more), I hope to provide a gentle introduction to HBase (since I never had one myself!) This specific post is more about the specifics of HBase’s data structure, but I hope to do more posts introducing HBase programming using a combination of HBase on Amazon’s Elastic Map Reduce (I like to call it Amazon’s HAAS or HBase-as-a-Service) and Python using the HappyBase library (this offers a really easy interface to the HBase Thrift interface.)
