Installing HBase

This topic includes instructions for using package managers to download and install HBase from the MEP repository.

Before installing HBase, you should plan which cluster nodes should run the HBase Master service, and which nodes should run the HBase RegionServer. At least one node (generally three nodes) should run the HBase Master. For example, install HBase Master on the ZooKeeper nodes. Only a few of the remaining nodes or all of the remaining nodes can run the HBase RegionServer.

The following procedures use the operating-system package managers to download and install from the MEP repository.
