Hadoop Cluster cold backup to S3

[ Edited ]

Hi ,

I want to take cluster backup to S3 and then wipe out the cluster ,may be later spin it again .

for taking backup to s3 what is the best apporoach .

1- copy the entire hdfs content to S3 ( in single bucket or create mutiple bucket)

2- do i need to take hbase snapshot along with /hbase copy to s3 or either one will work.

3- REST encryption is enabled ,any special consideration to take while moving backup to S3

4- and how restore will work from  S3 , just copy to hdfs
