Accumulo is a sorted and distributed key/value store designed to handle large amounts of data. Being highly robust and scalable, its performance makes it ideal for real-time data storage. Apache Accumulo is based on Google's BigTable design and is built on top of Apache Hadoop, Zookeeper, and Thrift.
Apache Accumulo for Developers looks at the process of setting up three systems - Hadoop, ZooKeeper, and Accumulo – and configuring, monitoring, and securing them.

Readers will learn how to connect Accumulo to both Hadoop and ZooKeeper. The book also shows readers how to monitor the cluster (single-node or multi-node) to find any performance bottlenecks, and then integrate to Amazon EC2, Google Cloud Platform, Rackspace, and Windows Azure. When integrating with these cloud platforms, it focuses on scripting as well.

This book is great for developers new to Accumulo, who are looking to get a good grounding in how to use Accumulo. It’s assumed that you have an understanding of how Hadoop works, both HDFS and MapReduce.

The following are some of the chapters covered in the book:

Chapter 1: Building an Accumulo Cluster from Scratch
Chapter 2: Monitoring and Managing Accumulo
Chapter 3: Integrating Accumulo into Various Cloud Platforms
Chapter 4: Optimizing Accumulo Performance
Chapter 5: Security
