HBase High Availability

During the HBase service install, depending on your component assignment, Ambari installs and configures one HBase Master component and multiple RegionServer components. To setup high availability for the HBase service, you can run two or more HBase Master components by adding an HBase Master component. Once running two or more HBase Masters, HBase uses ZooKeeper for coordination of the active Master.
