Subject Re: Accumulo Data Storage Efficiency

It'd be nice to see some numbers, but I also think it's important to
account for use cases. Doing secondary indexing on records/files,
metadata extraction and document storage will increase the raw storage
required by some factor. Then, it's all compressed in various ways
(ie, at the RFile level, at the HDFS block level)!

Could we try to define some rudimentary structure that we'd put the
data in? Like just create a term index on it, since I know HBase and
Cassandra should be able to handle that.
