Hbase with S3

Can Cloudera Hbase be configured on AWS to use S3 as the primary storage.
How does it this configuration compares to AWS EMR with s3 on cost and performance front

Re: Hbase with S3

CDH5 HBase cannot currently be run over AWS S3.

Cloudera Manager currently supports exporting snapshot backups from HBase tables onto S3:, but not deploying HBase service over S3 storage, due to S3's lack of some POSIX-like FileSystem semantics that HBase relies on.
