Using Apache Phoenix to store and access data
Also available as:

Associating tables of a schema to a namespace

After you enable namespace mapping on a Phoenix schema that already has tables, you can migrate the tables to an HBase namespace. The namespace directory that contains the migrated tables inherits the schema name.

For example, if the schema name is store1, then the full path to the namespace is $hbase.rootdir/data/store1. System tables are migrated to the namespace automatically during the first connection after enabling namespace properties.
