Take a look at http://opentsdb.net/ and see if it attacks your time series
problem in an interesting way for what you are doing.
Regarding your second comment, Zookeeper actually makes it easier to install
hbase because it stabilizes the interactions between different components.
There is also an option to have hbase run ZK itself so that you don't have
to think about it. I wouldn't recommend that for a serious production
Can you say a bit more about what kind of "time data" you have and what kind
of analysis you want to do?
