Subject Re: Storing images in Hbase
Date Sun, 06 Jan 2013 20:33:19 GMT
To add to Andy's point - storing images in HBase is fine as long as
the size of each image isn't huge. A couple for MBs per row in HBase
do just fine. But once you start getting into 10s of MBs, there are
more optimal solutions you can explore and HBase might not be the best
bet.
