To pile on top of Sean's reply I'd say that given the current estimates a
traditional RDBMS such as Postgres could fit the bill. If the potential
scalability needs to be taken into account you could look at MPP-type
of solutions to scale from Postgres. Ping me off-list if you're interested
in that route.

To get us back on topic for user@hadoop, I'd say that Hadoop ecosystem
strategy for your use case has to be warranted by more than a size
of data. In fact, I'd say that the Hadoop and/or Spark would only make
sense to you if you feel like taking advantage of various analytical
frameworks available for those.

Just my 2c.
