HBase replication policy
You can replicate HBase and Phoenix tables using HBase replication policies in CDP Public Cloud Replication Manager. An HBase replication policy replicates the data at table-level granularity. After you create an HBase replication policy, you can delete one or more tables from the policy.
HBase data replication in SFT-enabled clusters is also supported by Replication Manager for target clusters with version CDP 7.2.16 or higher.
When you create a replication policy you can choose the Perform Initial Snapshot option to migrate the data that existed before you created the replication policy and the data that is generated after you create the policy. When you do not choose the option, the policy migrates only the data that is generated after you created the policy.
For example, suppose you have two tables named Orders and Customers in the source cluster and you want to copy the data from these tables from March 1, 2021 onwards. To accomplish this task, you create an HBase replication policy without choosing the Perform Initial Snapshot option in the Create Replication Policy wizard on March 1, 2021. The data that you create, update, or delete in the source cluster after you created the policy is automatically replicated to the target cluster.
