Subject RE: Using HBase on other file systems

My thinking is around separation of concerns - at an OU level not just at a system integration
level. Walrus gives me a consistent, usable abstraction layer to transparently substitute
the storage implementation - for example from symmetrix <--> isilon or anything in between.
Walrus is storage subsystem agnostic, so it need not be configured for inconsistency like
the Amazon service it emulates.

Tight coupling for lock-in is a great commercial technique often seen with suppliers. But
it is a bad one. Very bad.

You really want to run HBase backed by Eucalyptus' Walrus? What do you have behind that?
