Video | Fusion Hive metastore replication

One of Fusion 2.9's most important new features is active-transactional replication of the Hive metastore. Used to support SQL-like access to Hadoop. Changes to table definitions and other objects in the Hive metastore are replicated to metastore instances deployed with other Hadoop clusters. Data added to the underlying Hadoop cluster referencing the new object definitions is replicated to other Hadoop clusters in a subsequent step, to guarantee consistent access across clusters and locations. Watch a video demonstration here.
