Recheck the required configurations --
http://hbase.apache.org/book/notsoquick.html#requirements -- and I'm
sure you've see the perf section:

Otherwise, can you check the systems?  Perhaps there is a badly
configured network driver or disk controller on the new hardware?  Do
some basic sanity checks that the blades are working as advertised.

Good luck,
