Overview of Apache Hive Data Replication in CDH

Data replication enables you to copy (replicate) your Hive metastore and data from one cluster to another and synchronize the Hive metastore and data set on the destination cluster with the source, based on a specified replication schedule. The destination cluster must be managed by the Cloudera Manager Server where the replication is being set up, and the source cluster can be managed by that same server or by a peer Cloudera Manager Server.

For detailed information about configuring and monitoring data replication for Hive, see Hive/Impala Replication.
