Backup to the dedicated HDFS archive cluster

This strategy provides greater fault tolerance and provides a path towards disaster recovery.

In this setting, you will store the backup on a separate HDFS cluster by supplying the backup destination cluster’s HDFS URL to the backup utility. You should consider backing up to a different physical location, such as a different data center.

Typically, a backup-dedicated HDFS cluster uses a more economical hardware profile.
