Subject Fault Tolerance: Inquiry for approaches to solve single point of failure when name node fails
Date Thu, 13 Mar 2008 20:50:56 GMT
I have a question. As we know, the name node forms a single point of failure.
In a production environment, I imagine a name node would run in a data
center. If that data center
fails, how would you a put a new name node in place in another data
center that can take over without minimum interruption?

I was wondering if anyone has any experience/ideas/comments on this.

Thanks
