4. Hive High Availability

The Hive service has multiple, associated components. The primary Hive components are: Hive Metastore and HiveServer2. To setup high availability for the Hive service, you can run two or more of each of those components.


This feature is available with HDP 2.2 or later.


The relational database that backs the Hive Metastore itself should also be made highly available using best practices defined for the database system in use and should be done after consultation with your in-house DBA.
