HBase is a distributed, scalable, big data store that is often used as the database for real time, and near real time, Big Data applications. HBase availability disruptions result in non-responsive applications, data loss etc. In this presentation, the two main areas of HBase availability concerns, namely the Region Server and the HBase master are analyzed. The use of a Paxos based co-ordination system to provide multiple active Region Servers per Region is presented. The role of the HBase Master, and a robust system for providing multiple active HBase Masters are considered here.
