    I have some question regarding failure scenarios for HBase. What happens when HMaster fails? As far as I understand HBase become un-available, right? Is it possible to run HMaster in a clustered fashion with fail over. Can someone point me to the documentation how to set up if that is possible.

    Thanks a lot

    I was more about a manual which Explains how to install HBase on top of HDFS HA. The reffered manual is more about having HBase in HA mode meaning running multiple HMasters concurently. Or did I misuderstood something.



    Hi Jakub,
