Nope. Column family is per table (its sub-directory inside your table directory in HDFS).
If you have N tables you will always have , at least, N distinct CFs (even if they have the
same name).

Subject: one column family but lots of tables

i read in multiple places that i should try to limit the number of column
families in hbase.

do i understand it correctly that when i create lots of tables, but they
all use the same column family (by name), that i am just using one column
family and i am OK with respect to limiting number of column families ?

thanks! koert
