Subject consistency, availability and partition pattern of HBase
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2012 01:28:36 GMT
Hello guys,

According to the notes by Werner*, "*He presented the CAP theorem, which
states that of three properties of shared-data systems—data consistency,
system availability, and tolerance to network partition—only two can be
achieved at any given time." =>

But it seems HBase could achieve all of the 3 features at the same time.
Does it mean HBase breaks the rule by Werner. :-)

If not, which one is sacrificed -- consistency (by using HDFS),
availability (by using Zookeeper) or partition (by using region / column
family) ? And why?
