HBase DR best practices

HBase DR best practices



I am implementing DR for our HBase cluster. Can you share any best practices/gotchas around this ?

I know that question is general, but any information on tuning, monitoring or architecture are welcome.

I wanted to check, if someone has any lesson learned with some dos and don'ts.



Re: HBase DR best practices


The HDP Data Movement and Integration documentation appears to cover disaster recovery across the HDP stack. If this approach interests you, note the Configuring for Disaster Recovery chapter.

There is a documented HBase backup-and-restore solution in HDP version 2.5.x, but note that the feature is not officially supported by Hortonworks because it's in Technical Preview. You might want to test it out to see if this approach fits your needs. I would not be surprised if the HBase backup-and-restore feature becomes a fully supported feature sometime in 2017.
