You can run as many server as you want, we actually run 1 per region
server in our production environment. Instead of running
./bin/hbase-daemon.sh start thrift, do the following to have 1 per RS:
./bin/hbase-daemons.sh start thrift

It's really just a wrapper around the java client so it scales to how
many nodes you have.
