Uhm you can easily do this in HBase a couple of different ways. :-)
Your option 2 is this solution he wants.
Or option 3, store the data into a map or some serializable object, (Single column)
Option 4, use Avro single column
Option 5, if data set is large enough, store it in a sequence file and use HBase as index.
You just need to free yourself from thinking only in terms of ER modeling.
