Subject Re: When should I jump on HBase rather than RDBMS?

I believe that their are lots of NoSql overview slide decks that give  
great intro to the why. For me:

Performant writes
Dreaming of master master master......
Time series data schemas
Batch processing of data via hadoop
Replication can't keep up
Spending r&d time on hacking work arounds to mysql rather than product  
You already gave master drbd master and 3 or more slaves.
