After reading the article on highscalability I have a few questions about

1. You're saying that matching data on the client side in for example Java
would be slow. Are you just talking about skipping multiple round trips to
the server, since the matching should take as long on the server as on the
client, no?

2. If that is the case could you solve the same problem by implementing a
server side method, in for example HBase, that did something similar so you
only would need one round trip?

3. For the billions of entries mentioned in the post, what kind of hardware
are you guys using?

Thanks Erik
