When denormalisation is been mentioned, it is implied having redundant
data. The idea is as there is no join instead of doing N lookups (to
replace N joins) keeping redundant data will allow you to do a single
lookup and furthermore, HBase is great in scaling huge data sets.

When I started reading http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/Hbase/FAQ#A20 it
helped me understand it further.

Hope this helps.
