Enabling HA for Hbase Thrift


We have installed 2 Hbase Thrift Gateways in Kerberos enabled (AD kerberos) HDP 2.5 Cluster. We want to use this in HA mode. What is the recommended way of enabling this. Is it using Load Balancer or any other way we can achieve this?

The HBase Thrift interface doesn’t have any built-in load balancing . So the recommendation will be to do a load balancing to be done with external tools such a DNS round-robin, a virtual IP address, or in code.


Thanks @Sumesh for the update. Any kerberos config changes I need to do for kerberized thrift server?
