Subject RE: which HBase version to use?
Date Mon, 22 Nov 2010 18:55:17 GMT
Right now you can't get 0.90 from CDH3. It is an 0.89-<mumble>. It will not be a better
choice than 0.90 once 0.90 is released. 

We are looking at deploying CDH3B3 plus a custom RPM built in house that updates the CDH3B3
HBase package to 0.90. 

I'm not sure we forgo support for our ops team just because we do that. I can't comment as
an authority on Cloudera's business of course since I do not work from them, but as a customer
I expect by the letter of the contract we cannot (and would not anyway) ask for support for
HBase if using a custom version, but e.g. any HDFS related trouble is independent and we would
be very unhappy if told otherwise. 

Best regards,

    - Andy
