I totally agree.  An official HBase async client would be awesome

I agree here but will go farther. Hbase needs an asynchronous api that goes
further than its current capability, for example like building lamda
functions in the client tier that execute in a java streams manner. Being
able to run mapping functions, aggregations, etc without needing
coprocessors would be a big win. If Hbase doesn’t do it, the next thing

I do think it would be good for Phoenix to have a netty-based async means
of interacting with the server. We've found that to really drive down
latency for a parallelized query over a big cluster, you have to have a
ridiculously large thread pool on the client side (4000 threads for cluster
with 100s of nodes). A netty-based means of interacting would allow us to
drive down the latency without resorting to this (though this is pure
conjecture at this point - we might run into other, unknown scaling
constraints through an async API). Asynchbase, however, has a lot of
restrictions in terms of how you can interact with the server. If it could
become part of HBase and support the full wire protocol, then it might be
an option.
