Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2008) [EC2] Periodic automatic backup to S3
Date Tue, 24 Nov 2009 19:49:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2008?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12782124#action_12782124

Andrew Purtell commented on HBASE-2008:

Consider an easy way for the user to back up an elastic HBase cluster to S3. 

distcp is too naive an approach. Compactions rewrite data into new files. 

One option is a tool, probably MapReduce in formulation, that incrementally writes new edits
(stores and delete markers) into log structured files in S3, and conversely can reply from
S3 back into HBase. 

Another option is to hook replication (HBASE-1295) at least for the backup piece.
