Subject Re: Hbase Table has many column families
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2012 19:16:09 GMT
6 tables with 1 CF apiece is a perfectly reasonable approach, particularly
if the data is to be processed separately.

If the data is all to be processed at the same time (e.g., regularly all
in one MR job) then you might want to consider a single table with a 1 CF
and heterogenous rows.
