Does Cloudera BDR solution provides Namenode backup ?

Visitor

Hi,

 

We wanted to consider Clouder BDR for our Organization. I had few questions around it.

 

                1.   Does Cloudera BDR provides Namenode backup ?

                2.   Will Cloudera BDR let me backup my hdfs and Hive replication to a remote machine or I need another backup Hadoop Cluster to backup my data?

 

Regards

Bijoy

Hey Bijoy,

Cloudera has a video [1] that can answer these and more questions in great detail. Note that Cloudera BDR works on the premise of your cluster having a peer CM-managed cluster, so you need to have another cluster available to backup your data (at scale, it wouldn't make sense to try backing up data from a 500-node cluster to a single machine, for example).

All the best,
Dima
