marco polo created ACCUMULO-4022:

             Summary: Create a concept of multi-homed tablets
                 Key: ACCUMULO-4022
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: client, tserver
            Reporter: marco polo

I'm an accumulo newbie, but I wish to see the concept of multi-homed tablets. This allows
us to have tablets hosted by multiple servers, with only one being writable against it. This
concept would allow n receiver servers for a tablet. An example might be a tablet that has
become a hot spot could be dynamically hosted elsewhere, and clients could pick this up as
a potential. Consistency must be kept between the hosts, as the initial read/write host may
compact or write to that tablet. 

To me the larger problem may come from live ingest in which the write ahead log has not been
flushed. To avoid having to write to the read only servers in a pipeline, we would likely
need to create a model of enforcing reads only after a flush of that tablet or a thrift interface
to allow reading only the data in memory to ensure consistency is enforced. I haven't given
great thought to solving this yet. 

Please comment with ideas and pitfalls as I would like to see this wish come to fruition with
actionable tickets after some community thought.
