Can you say a bit more about how HBase is happier versus not?

I can speculate on a number of reasons why this may be the case, but in general we should
take the view that if the OS has 1000 days of uptime etc. so should HBase, and work toward
that goal. (Unless the JVM just gets in our way... but so far we have not clearly identified
an intractable case.)
