        Comments about oreilly Accumulo:

        This book has less information that other free resources available for Accumulo. I understand that the book has not been finished yet, but the sections that are complete provide hardly any in-depth information.

        Definitely looking forward to the full release though. It would be awesome if the book could touch on some of the schemas that have been built on top of accumulo (D4M, NuWave, Cosmos, etc.)
