The latest video in the Hortonworks Executive Video Series features Sanjay Radia, Hortonworks co-founder and Apache Hadoop PMC member. Sanjay is well known in the HDFS circles, having contributed to Hadoop for the past 4+ years. In this video, Sanjay gives a good overview of HDFS, the primary storage system for Hadoop, and provides some insight into both the 0.23 release as well as what can be expected from HDFS over the rest of 2012. He hits on some key elements such as federation, snapshots and improving the overall storage efficiency of HDFS.
If you would like to learn more about HDFS and where it is heading, make sure to attend Hadoop Summit next month in San Jose. At the conference, Sanjay will be presenting HDFS – What is New and Future together with Suresh Srinivas of Hortonworks, as well as Apache Hadoop and Virtual Machines together with Richard McDougall of VMWare.
