             Summary: HBase Backup/Restore Phase 2: Create plugin hooks for Backup tools
                 Key: HBASE-14416
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-14416
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Geoffrey Jacoby

Different organizations may already have their own backup tools for HBase, or wish to develop
them in the future for their own particular use cases. It would be useful if HBase supported
hooks to integrate those tools so that they could be configured and run in a standard way.

In particular, the administrative interface to start a backup, restore, or merge should be
decoupled from any particular implementation as much as possible, so that any implementation
with similar capabilities can be substituted via configuration without needing to fork or
modify the code. 

Ideally, it will also be possible to decouple the various components so that implementations
can be mixed and matched. (For example, one could use the standard backup's functionality
to track what needs to be backed up, but use a custom plugin to change the logic or storage
format of the backup operation itself.)
