Subject Re: which approach is better
Date Wed, 17 Jul 2013 17:59:59 GMT
First of all, that might not be the right approach to choose the underlying
storage. You should choose HDFS or HBase depending on whether the data is
going to be used for batch processing or you need random access on top of
it. HBase is just another layer on top of HDFS. So obviously the queries
running on top of HBase are going to be less efficient. So if you can get
away with using HDFS, I would say that is the best and simplest approach.
