Creating Highly Available HBase Tables with the HBase Shell

Create HA tables using the HBase shell using the REGION_REPLICATION keyword.

HBase Shell

Valid values are 1, 2, and 3, indicating the total number of copies. The default value is 1.

The following example creates a table named t1 that is replicated to one secondary replica:

    CREATE 't1', 'f1', {REGION_REPLICATION => 2}

To replicate t1 to two secondary regions, set REGION_REPLICATION to 3:

    CREATE 't1', 'f1', {REGION_REPLICATION => 3}
