Comments on Understanding HBase column-family performance options
Thanks for the detailed answers Jim, this is very useful. Now I'm off to and do some playing with HBaseShell to get a good feel for it all in practice.
I hope these posts get rolled into the docs as a primer. This has definitely helped free my head from thinking about these concepts the RDBMS way.

No problem Drew, glad to help!
Thanks for posing your insightful questions - without them I probably wouldn't have thought to write this article.

A winner as always. I've been messing with HBase for a few days now - and love it. This helps, thanks Jim.

Regarding the IN_MEMORY attribute in HBase, it is still not implemented so no benchmarks ;)
Also, along with MAX_VERSIONS, 0.2.0 will introduce a TTL.

Thanks for putting this up! And where's the beef =) I'd really like to see some benchmarks. I have been researching HBase performance and found much discussion but few benchmarks.
