Subject Using HDFS for common purpose
Date Tue, 27 Jan 2009 09:20:07 GMT
I wanted to ask, if HDFS is a good solution just as a distributed db (no
running jobs, only get and put commands)
A review says that "HDFS is not designed for low latency" and besides, it's
implemented in Java.
Do these disadvantages prevent us using it?
Or could somebody suggest a better (faster) one?

Thanks in advance..
