> If the data file for -ROOT- or .META. is damaged, a HBase installation is rendered inoperative.
Manual recovery through writing a new -ROOT- by hand is relatively simple (I think) but it's
not simple and maybe not even possible to recreate a .META. containing thousands of regions.
During one experiment I lost the entire .META. data file due to DFS errors during compaction.
This can be avoided by utilizing multiple backing data files for -ROOT- and .META. synchronized
in a manner that avoids total data loss should the filesystem become degraded.
