Subject Hbase Schema

In RDBMS we have multiple DB schemas\oracle user instances.

Similarly, can we have multiple db schemas in hbase? If yes, can we have
multiple schemas one one hadoop-hbase cluster? If multiple schemas possible,
how can we define them? Using configuration or programatically?

Q2: can we have same column family name in multiple tables? if yes, does it
impacts performance if we have same name column family in multiple tables?

Q3: Sequential keys improves read performance and random keys improves write
performance. which way one must go?

Q4: What are best practices to improve hadoop+hbase performance?

Q5: when one program is deleting tables, another program is accessing a row
of that table. what would be impact of it? can we have some sort of lock
while reading or while deleting a table?

Q6: as everything in application is byte form, what would happen if hbase db
and application are using different character set? can we synch both for
some particular character set by configuration or programatically?
