Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-3199) Need an FTP Server implementation over HDFS
Date Wed, 09 Apr 2008 07:35:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3199?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12587077#action_12587077

Enis Soztutar commented on HADOOP-3199:
---------------------------------------

The same bottleneck was present in the webdav interface, that I developed some time ago (HADOOP-496).
The ideal solution to a webdav/FTP server in terms of scalability would be an architecture
with a master server redirecting requests to slave servers, which serve the actual request.
The slave servers themselves may or may not be in the cluster.

> 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.
