It sounds lik you're planning to use the HBase shell to insert all of
this data. If that's correct, I'd recommend against it. I would write
a simple MapReduce program to insert the data instead. You could run a
map-only job that reads in the files and writes each one as a row in
HBase. WIth the java APIs you can write the raw bytes pretty easily.
