With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

Get up to speed on Apache Accumulo, the flexible, high-performance key/value store created by the National Security Agency (NSA) and based on Google’s BigTable data storage system. Written by former NSA team members, this comprehensive tutorial and reference covers Accumulo architecture, application development, table design, and cell-level security.

With clear information on system administration, performance tuning, and best practices, this book is ideal for administrators charged with installing and maintaining Accumulo, programmers seeking to write Accumulo applications, and other professionals interested in what Accumulo has to offer. You will find everything you need to use this system fully.

    Comments about oreilly Accumulo:

    This book has less information that other free resources available for Accumulo. I understand that the book has not been finished yet, but the sections that are complete provide hardly any in-depth information.

    Comments about oreilly Accumulo:

    Definitely looking forward to the full release though. It would be awesome if the book could touch on some of the schemas that have been built on top of accumulo (D4M, NuWave, Cosmos, etc.)
