Subject usecase: tagged key/values
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2009 23:50:23 GMT
Hi,

I was wondering if hbase is a good fit for the following - storing 
arbitrary key/values tagged with a single identifier, eg:

"8904830324": {
   "url":"...",
   "stat":"...",
   ...
}


When I say arbitrary I mean across deployments. So while each deployment 
will have different sets of keys, tags within that deployment will tend 
to reuse same keys, hence there is an option to index via keys (eg find 
all tags where stat=1 above). It's similar I guess to what memcached-tag 
[1] does, but needs to be persisted.

Any thoughts?

Bill
