I'm not familiar with MongoDB. Perhaps someone else can confirm this for you.

So, can I say that if I have a table split across nodes (i.e. num

to a sharded and replicated mongo architecture?

    The Accumulo (Data Center) Replication feature is for having
    multiple active Accumulo clusters all containing the same data.

    HDFS provides replication as a means for durability of the data it
    is storing. The files that Accumulo creates on one HDFS instance are
    replicated by HDFS. This does not help if your entire cluster become
    unavailable. That is what the data center replication Accumulo
    feature solves.

    While both can be called "replication", they serve very different

        the replication on HDFS level. What exactly is the use case for
        replication? Are the replicated instances visible to the clients?
