Backup to the Cloud or a Storage vendor

This approach enables you to safeguard the HBase incremental backups by storing the data on provisioned, secure servers that belong to third-party vendors, which are located off-site.

The vendor can be a public cloud provider or a storage vendor who uses a Hadoop-compatible file system, such as S3 and other HDFS-compatible destinations.

The HBase backup utility does not support backup to multiple destinations. A workaround is to manually create copies of the backed up files from HDFS or S3.
