Is there any way to archive HBase data like "Hadoop Archive" ?

Re: HBase Archive ?

No, because HDFS is a filesystem and HBase is a key-value store ("database").

But, you can archive HBase tables easily. Please see the HBase snapshot feature: http://hbase.apache.org/book.html#ops.snapshots. Using this feature, you can take a point-in-time view of a table, and copy all of the referenced files to some location in HDFS or elsewhere.

Re: HBase Archive ?

What benefit you are expecting by archiving hbase data like "Hadoop Archive"? or Is your purpose to just archive HBase data in any form?
