Apache Iceberg can be salvation for frustrated Hive users who struggle with data consistency and performance issues as well as substantial, time-consuming maintenance. Migrating from Hive / Hadoop to a modern data stack will likely be an important project for all Hive users in the coming quarters.
In this webinar we will cover the ins and outs of the migration process with Iceberg as the target, and we will demonstrate open source tooling that will help smooth the transition. Jason Reid, Head of Product at Tabular who led the original migration from Hive to Iceberg at Netflix, will cover:
- Why migrate? the advantage of leaving Hive for a modern format
- Common migration challenges and considerations
- Demos of three useful open source tools that can streamline the migration effort
As a “demo” bonus, Cliff Gilmore, Tabular Solutions Architect, will walk-through three useful open source tools that can streamline the migration effort.
