well, the internal PersistenceManager interface in Jackrabbit is rather
designed to store content in a single table. this means HBase is a good
fit, but the problem is transactionality. as you can see the sandbox project
depends on a quite old HBase version and AFAIK the most recent version
does not support transactions anymore.

AFAIK HDFS with Jackrabbit was never used in production and you'd have to
carefully test it. As mentioned earlier, the only sensible usage I see for
HDFS in Jackrabbit is for the DataStore component.
