Subject schema design: single column (KV)?
Date Fri, 23 Sep 2016 20:25:55 GMT

Some of the experiments [1] show that using single column (single KV) allows for smaller file
sizes and less data transfer to the client. On the other hand, natural split into columns
(1 data attribute = 1 column) is somewhat "more aligned” with HBase design and should give
all the benefits (less boilerplate in the code, column filters etc).

Does anyone use single-column design in production installations for performance or other
