HBase clone / restore snapshots

Hello --


We have some production tables in HBase.

We'd like to update a portion of these tables with new data.

Unfortunately, due to the way our end-user requests work, we cannot update these tables "in place".


Our plan is to:

  1. Create snapshot of the original table
  2. Restore snapshot to a new table
  3. Load new data to the new table
  4. Create snapshot of the new table
  5. Restore snapshot to the original table

Is this considered "best practice"?

Do we have other options?


Thanks for your time!
