Add read-only region replicas (slaves) for availability and fast region recovery
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HBASE-2357
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2357
             Project: Hadoop HBase
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: master, regionserver
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon


I dont plan on working on this in the short term, but the idea is to extend region ownership
to have two modes. Each region has one primary region server and N slave region servers. The
slaves would follow the master (probably by streaming the relevant HLog entries directly from
it) and be able to serve stale reads. The benefit is twofold: (a) provides the ability to
spread read load, (b) enables very fast region failover/rebalance since the memstore is already
nearly up to date on the slave RS.
