option to run it on lower end hardware.

which is causing problems. It's 50M rows, a pretty straight forward set of

The challenge  is that I need to do 10+ range scans a day over about 7M
items each where we check for updates. This is ideal for HBase, but hell for
MySQL (a join of a 7M row table with a 50M row table is giving us

significant memory/CPU requirements...

But here's where I don't find a lot of information - as  someone reasonably
new to HBase (I read a book, did the examples), am I missing anything in my
