> I see. 0.89 is the still a developer release and I hear that it is not stable. But it
sounds really tempting because it boosts performance by a lot. Can I trust it if my final
goal is to insert about 100TB of data? What could be the possible issues? Also when shall
I expect to see a stable release?

The problem will be your 6 machines, not the software. And if you need
to insert that much data, please use the bulk uploader as it will be
much faster: http://hbase.apache.org/docs/r0.89.20100621/bulk-loads.html

HTable objects to handle the insertions? Do I need to do multi-threading manually?

By multiple clients I mean multiple JVMs, you can also do
multi-threading inside each client with their own HTable (since it's
not thread-safe). But please use the bulk loader.

Check the "status" command in the shell, or checkout the master web UI
on port 60030 like it says here
