Migrating between Apache HBase and MapR Database Binary Tables

If you were previously using HBase tables on your cluster, prepare your cluster to use MapR Database binary tables in MapR 6.0 or later.

MapR Database tables can be parsed by the Apache CopyTable tool (org.apache.hadoop.hbase.mapreduce.CopyTable). You can use the CopyTable tool to migrate data from an Apache HBase table to a MapR Database binary table.
