Subject Re: Advantage/disadvantage of dbm vs join vs HBase

Nope. I have never used HBase before. I'm also new to Hadoop in
general. I'll be running the MapReduce job on EMR.

Disregarding what I'm familiar with, I'd also like to know when one
would do one thing vs another. Maybe it's something we can only tell
from experimenting around, but it sounds like a problem others have
ran into before.
