Controversy Section[edit]

It is unclear why this is controversial. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.111.28.175 (talk) 23:36, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

I agree. It is not controversial. The head should be changed. 69.143.180.9 (talk) 14:16, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

If you read the cited article, you'll see why it was considered controversial. For example, "In a bill recently introduced on Capitol Hill, the committee questions whether Accumulo runs afoul of a government policy that prevents federal agencies from building their own software when they have access to commercial alternatives." For an appropriation bill to specifically call out a software brand or vendor is highly unusual. I agree, however, that as written, this is not clear. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.29.43.2 (talk) 15:34, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Difference with HBase[edit]

According to their description, HBase and Acculumo seem both to do the same thing, and both be part of the Apache project. Are they competitors, can they work together, is there one more used than the other...? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 159.50.249.149 (talk) 14:39, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
