      Description

      We often recommend enabling LZO on tables, most users see big wins. LZO is roughly comparable to BigTable LZW, and we get something like prefix compression on keys. However, LZO is GPL licensed, so a series of install steps are required: http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/UsingLzoCompression . It's easy to miss a step or get it wrong. If so, all writes on a table (re)configured to use LZO will fail.

      Hadoop, well, Java, has native support for gzip compression but it is too slow generally; is a good option however for archival tables.

      This issue is about considering bundling or creating a comparable alternate to LZO which is ASF 2.0 license compatible.
