Subject hbase vs bigtable
Date Sat, 28 Aug 2010 20:07:27 GMT
bigtable was written for 1 core machines, with ~ 100 regions per box.
Thanks to CMS we generally can't run on < 4 cores, and at this point
16 core machines (with HTT) is becoming pretty standard.

The question is, how do we leverage the ever-increasing sizes of
machines and differentiate ourselves from bigtable?  What did google
do (if anything) to adopt to the 16 core machines?  We should be able
to do quite a bit on a 20 or 40 node cluster.

more thread parallelism?
