We are planning to migrate from CDH3 to CDH4, as part of this migration we also planning to bring HBASE into out system because it also updates to the data, in CDH3 we are using Hive as warehouse.
Here we are having the major problem in migration, Hive supports partitions to tables. And our system has many tables in different schemas and some tables has partitions base on date, we have the history of data from last 5 years (365 * 5 partitions exists in some tables).
We want to achieve the same behavior in HBase also, when I browsed I couldnt find the solution for creating partitions in HBase. Can any one help me in implementing this partition wised table creation in HBase.
Its really great help if we can find at least some work around solutions also.
