Hey Michael

You could probably use Cascading to migrate data between HBase clusters.

But the code currently doesn't support multiple HBase cluster clients  
in a single JVM, but I'm sure it can be coded in quickly. (the code is  
hosted at github, so is easily cloned and patched).

A benefit of using Cascading would be the ability to put in quality  
checks, or filter data very easily.

I've already heard of users starting to migrate from HBase to a RDBMS  
using Cascading, and also between Hypertable and Aster Data. Hopefully  
those adapters will leak out for the rest of us to use.
