I'm in the process of building out a MapR cluster and I had some questions on HA when it comes to Hive and the Hive metastore.  I've done a lot of research of the MapR forums and other sites, but I would like to know what everyone else thinks.

  1. Does your MapR cluster have multiple HiveServers and Metastores?
  2. How do you have your metastore configured?
  3.  MySQL cluster or active/passive configuration?
