-------------------------------------

FYI, haven't forgotten about this. just a bit underwater. should be back with 
bandwidth next week.

> Recently, changes (such as HBASE-17437) have unblocked HBase to run with a 
> root directory external to the cluster (such as in Amazon S3). This means 
> that the data is stored outside of the cluster and can be accessible after 
> the cluster has been terminated. One use case that is often asked about is 
> pointing multiple clusters to one root directory (sharing the data) to have 
> read resiliency in the case of a cluster failure.
>  
> This JIRA is an umbrella JIRA to contain all the tasks necessary to create a 
> read-replica HBase cluster that is pointed at the same root directory.
>  
> This requires making the Read-Replica cluster Read-Only (no metadata 
> operation or data operations).
> Separating the hbase:meta table for each cluster (Otherwise HBase gets 
> confused with multiple clusters trying to update the meta table with their ip 
> addresses)
> Adding refresh functionality for the meta table to ensure new metadata is 
> picked up on the read replica cluster.
> Adding refresh functionality for HFiles for a given table to ensure new data 
> is picked up on the read replica cluster.
>  
> This can be used with any existing cluster that is backed by an external 
> filesystem.
>  
> Please note that this feature is still quite manual (with the potential for 
> automation later).
>
