Subject Re: Should I use HBASE?

I'd guess that you could relatively easily write something that writes that much data into
your RDBMS and see how writes start behaving over time and how fast reads are after you are
done with all writes.
Over at Sematext we have this thing called Scalable Performance Monitoring [1] service and
we chose HBase to store all performance metrics, but we keep a LOT of data (points).

Not coincidentally, we also have HBase-specific monitoring and reports there.
