Alois Cochard commented on HAMA-359:

>>BUT this could be a large disadvantage too, in the case if a groom is not running
on a server where the data is actually stored.
>> In MapReduce this is called a non-local task, so you have to copy the data to the
local datanode

Exactly what I was thinking when I was speaking about problem of data locality.

>> Using a GraphDB and an interface like Blueprints is like using a MySQL Database with
JDBC inside a distributed environment. It is possible, but IMHO it is not optimal.

+1 Same conclusion here. I would say it's even an horrible abstraction inversion.

>>>>I looked at the graph-hbase, but it's just a graph-friendly API layer on top
of HBase. It'll make you feel complex.

So ok, no added value at all. Will break the flexibility of storing the adjacency matrix the
way you want.

To concluded it's seems more important to know *which* data structure to use, more than *where*
to store it.

When you sure which structure to use (adjacency list i.e.) you can then choose the best system
to store/access it (SequenceFile/HBase/...) and change it if necessary without impacting the

Thanks !
