Subject HBase/Hadoop backups in EC2
Date Thu, 20 Mar 2008 23:58:51 GMT
Does anyone have any experience with backing up data for an HBase  
cluster on Amazon EC2 instances?  We could take snapshots of the  
filesystem on a regular basis and dump to S3, but I was wondering if  
anyone had any other strategies to recommend?  EC2 instances can  
theoretically drop at anytime (although this hasn't happened to us  
yet), and although HDFS is distributed, there's no guarantee that all  
our EC2 instances aren't located on the same Amazon node when it goes  
down.
