Subject Smallest production HBase cluster
Date Thu, 22 Jul 2010 22:56:06 GMT
anyone able to share their experience, thoughts on the 'smallest' production HBase cluster
in operation?    Thinking there may be some point in the # Nodes scale where one transitions
from/to "that's silly" to "that's actually more like it".

Anyone out there with a small HBase cluster in operation with < 10 nodes able to share
any information?

I notice on http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/Hbase/PoweredBy there are some who have even just
a 3 node cluster, perhaps that's out of date, but curious to know from the community on where
people think 'the line' needs to be drawn on usage of Hbase.

To take things to an extreme, is there anyone actually running a _single_ HBase node... ?
(one would hope that machine is actually designed to be a bit more HA than normal) just to
take advantage of a column-oriented store?
