 ## Notable Improvements
-### Multiple namenode support
+### Multiple volume support
 [BigTable's][1] design allows for its internal metadata to automatically spread across multiple
nodes.  Accumulo has followed this design and scales very well as a result.  There is one
impediment to scaling though, and this is the HDFS namenode.  There are two problems with
the namenode when it comes to scaling.  First, the namenode stores all of its filesystem metadata
in memory on a single machine.  This introduces an upper bound on the number of files Accumulo
can have.  Second, there is an upper bound on the number of file operations per second that
a single namenode can support.  For example, a namenode can only support a few thousand delete
or create file request per second.
