Subject [jira] [Commented] (HBASE-11165) Scaling so cluster can host 1M regions and beyond (50M regions?)

Andrey Stepachev commented on HBASE-11165:

bq.Yeah, we'll have to go this route if we are trying to keep state of a big cluster in heap.
Could work on making the representation more compact. You arguing for single meta region Andrey
Stepachev then? There is also the on-hdfs size to consider (write-amplification) and the r/w

For sure, compact representation doesn't implicate single meta. Compact meta allows to bother
with split meta only for really big installations. But how HDFS would handle that, as [~mantonov]
mentioned above.

As for compact META representations we can use other technics to reduce HDFS impact for big

> A user -- our Francis Liu -- needs to be able to scale a cluster to do 1M regions maybe
even 50M later.  This issue is about discussing how we will do that (or if not 50M on a cluster,
how otherwise we can attain same end).
