Subject Re: Phoenix Secondary index question
Date Wed, 04 Jan 2017 23:21:47 GMT
Udit once they have been persisted Phoenix tables and indexes are just
normal rows in HBase tables. HBase backups and replication would work just
fine. It may be helpful to make a small table with index, upsert a few rows
and look at the raw entries with the HBase shell to understand what Phoenix
is doing for you behind the scenes.


As for Snapshot functionality, Phoenix has explicit support through
the CurrentSCN
property; usage is demonstrated in the FAQ.
