Just to clarify this point: we were able to replace some MapReduce jobs we
had with straight MongoDB cursor iterator jobs (the equivalent of HBase
scanners basically) without slowing down the time it took for the jobs to
complete. What my post says is that this cursor approach may be outgrown at
some point as our data grows, not MongoDB as a whole. When/if that happens,
we have the option of using the available MongoDB / Hadoop
