Subject RE: Backup data for a single hbase instance

Yes, I have done this in the past on a full cluster.  The backup process is slow for large
data sets, but at least it is simple.

Subject: Backup data for a single hbase instance


I  have a standalone, single, HBase instance (not running on Hadoop, or
in a cluster).

What's the best strategy for creating a backup of the data?

I can afford downtime so is it safe to simply create a copy of the
hbase.rootdir ?
