HDFS[edit]

>> It is developed as part of Apache Software Foundation's Apache Hadoop project and runs on top of HDFS (Hadoop Distributed Filesystem).

Strictly speaking, this is not true. In Hbase, you can configure the storage systems. I believe 99% will choose HDFS, but in theory you could use also the local file system. — Preceding unsigned comment added by StefanPapp (talkcontribs) 07:12, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Notability[edit]

I see the article's tagged for notability & haven't been able to find much in the way of articles in reliable sources. There were a few blog posts but that's about it. Not bad enough to warrant an AfD perhaps but may prod to see if anyone cares. -- samj inout 10:30, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

People like you are a plague on Wikipedia. "Derp. I've never heard of this is in the mainstream media -- better to delete it I think.". If you don't know anything about the subject, then just move along. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.9.176.129 (talk) 01:37, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
It's part of the Apache Hadoop Stack, which as you will agree, is notable as the primary non-Google implementation of datacentre-scale filesystem (HDFS) and layers on top, of which MapReduce is one feature, HBase another. Probably best coverage is ApacheCon slideware. One interesting feature of it is that since Microsoft bought Powerset, MS are effectively working on this. I shall improve the article a bit. No direct CoI problems, but I do know the people and am a committer on Hadoop proper. SteveLoughran (talk) 14:29, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
I've added some more on why I think it is notable. Left the tags marking other issues up.SteveLoughran (talk) 08:55, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

...and bloom filters[edit]

"HBase features compression, in-memory operation, and Bloom filters"

Bloom filters for what? Bloom filtered indexes? Just saying "and bloom filters" is like saying "and B-trees". Those are data structures, not features of a database.
