Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS)

Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) is a distributed file system designed to run on commodity hardware. It has many similarities with existing distributed file systems. However, the differences from other distributed file systems are significant. 
  • HDFS is highly fault-tolerant and is designed to be deployed on low-cost hardware. 
  • HDFS provides high throughput access to application data and is suitable for applications that have large data sets. 
  • HDFS relaxes a few POSIX requirements to enable streaming access to file system data. 
  • HDFS was originally built as infrastructure for the Apache Nutch web search engine project. 

HDFS is now an Apache Hadoop subproject.
