HBase is a distributed, NoSQL, open-source database, initially conceived as
an open-source alternative to Google’s proprietary BigTable. Originally,
HBase was part of the Hadoop project, but was eventually spun off as a
subproject. Given this legacy, it is not surprising that most often HBase is
deployed on top of a Hadoop cluster (it used HDFS as its underlying storage),
however a case study suggests that it can run on top of Amazon Elastic Block
Store (EBS) as well. These days HBase is used by companies such as Adobe,
Facebook, Twitter and Yahoo – and many others to process large amounts of
data in real time, since it is ideally placed to store the input and/or the
output of MapReduce jobs.
Monitoring HBase with Monitis and JMX
Like most products written in Java, both HBase and Hadoop contain built-in
JMX instrumentation, which theoretically allows us to use any JM... (more)

Here is a question that I have been pondering on and off for quite a while:
Why do "cool kids" choose Ruby or PHP to build websites instead of Java?
I have to admit that I do not have an answer.
Why do I even care? Because I am a Java developer. Like many Java developers,
I get along with Java well. Not only the language itself, but the development
environments (Eclipse for example), step-by-step debugging helper, wide
availability of libraries and code snippets, and the readily accessible
information on almost any technical question I may have on Java via Google. ... (more)

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
