Need an FTP Server implementation over HDFS

                 Key: HADOOP-3199
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3199
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: dfs
    Affects Versions: 0.16.2
            Reporter: Ankur

An FTP server that sits on top of a distributed filesystem like HDFS has many benefits. It
allows the storage and management of data via clients that do not know HDFS but understand
other more popular transport mechanism like FTP. The data is thus managed via a standard and
more popular protocol, support for which is widely available.

The idea is to leverage what is already available in Apache  http://mina.apache.org/ftpserver.html
and build on top of it. This FTP server can be embedded easily in hadoop and can easily be
programmed to talk to HDFS via an Ftplet which is run by the FTP server.

Ideally there should be options to configure FTP server settings (in hadoop-default.xml) which
allows FTP server to be started when HDFS is booted.
