Thank you all guys.
I found out that I misunderstood the "size of a region" and "size of a
I found this property
196- <description>Limit for the number of regions after which no more region
197: splitting should take place. This is not a hard limit for the number of
198: regions but acts as a guideline for the regionserver to stop
199: a certain limit. Default is set to MAX_INT; i.e. do not block splitting.
So in practice, a region server can handle enough regions, so I don't
need worry about the store size.
Thank you all again.
