Subject Why is scaling HBase much simpler then scaling a relational db?
Date Thu, 07 Aug 2008 12:45:29 GMT

can someone please explain oder point me to some documentation or 
papers, where i can read well proven facts, why scaling a relational db 
is so hard and scaling a document oriented db isnt?

So perhaps if i got lots of requests to my relational db, i would 
duplicate it to several servers and partition the requests. So why this 
doenst scale and why HBase for instance could manage this?

I'am really new to this topic and would like to dive in deeper.

Thanks a lot
