    Does HBase fit into column-oriented database or datastore definition of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Column-oriented_DBMS.If it does; does it mean the KeyValue entries in HFile is stored in a column basis ie all KeyValues of one {column family:column entry} stored together followed by next {column family:column }entry?

    Hi Kiran,

    Yes, HBase is a columnar db. So it does mean that the data is stored in a similar manner to what you describe.

    Thanks,
    Ted.
