If your use case is pure file modification, I am not sure how HBase is
helping you. Do you want to save some metadata as well? Are you doing some
file analysis and want to access the results? If not, you are probably
better off not adding another layer.
This is not to say HBase can not save file blobs. Just that in your

Thats my point of view! Lets see if someone on the list has some other
