+Why are the cells above 10MB not recommended for HBase?::
+  Large cells don't fit well into HBase's approach to buffering data. First, the large cells
bypass the MemStoreLAB when they are written. Then, they cannot be cached in the L2 block
cache during read operations. Instead, HBase has to allocate on-heap memory for them each
time. This can have a significant impact on the garbage collector within the RegionServer
 === Upgrading
 How do I upgrade Maven-managed projects from HBase 0.94 to HBase 0.96+?::
   In HBase 0.96, the project moved to a modular structure. Adjust your project's dependencies
to rely upon the `hbase-client` module or another module as appropriate, rather than a single
JAR. You can model your Maven dependency after one of the following, depending on your targeted
version of HBase. See Section 3.5, “Upgrading from 0.94.x to 0.96.x” or Section 3.3, “Upgrading
from 0.96.x to 0.98.x” for more information.

 HBase deals with large numbers of objects over this threshold, referred to here
