Subject Re: PROD/DR - Replication

Juan,

No; that would mean every single write to HBase has to wait for an ACK from a remote data
center, which would decrease your cluster throughput dramatically. If you need that, consider
other database solutions.

I was reading up on HBase Replication and wanted to make sure I'm not
missing something.

Given that replication happens asynchronously the replication strategy has
an "eventually consistent" policy.

I was considering using this feature for Production / Disaster Recovery
setup.

Is there a way to enforce Consistency so that if my PROD environment should
ever go down, I can 100% sure that DR will be completely up to date?

Thank you,
Juan
