Subject Re: Any guidelines on the number of region servers in HBase cluster?

Hi Senqiang,

I will say, it depend of the size of the data. Let's say you want to keep
about 100 regions per servers, and you have a 5TB table. With 10GB per
regions, that's 512 regions, so something close to 5RS can handle that
correctly. I guess that's a good starting point for your calculation.
