There is no option to export materialized snapshot to AWS yet - only to another HBase cluster.
You can export snapshot metadata to s3 using S3 FileSystem in Hadoop, but this is not you are looking for.
You can export snapshots to table(s) in another cluster and then use distcp to copy data over to s3.
One caveat: you have to have spare cluster for that, because you can't export table's snapshot to different cluster and
different table (name).
yea, too many limitations. One major enhancement to snapshots which is definitely welcomed is ability to export materialized
snapshots to a different DFS location (S3 in this case)

want redundant backup solution for data store. something like S3 or Glacier.
I will use CopyTable and snapshot for Hbase data. But the what is use
cluster are in same datacenter.
If two cluster are down. I want retrieve data from
Please guide me. what are the possible solution.
