Subject what exactly does data in HDFS look like?
Date Sat, 19 Jul 2014 04:12:32 GMT
And by that I mean is there an HDFS file type? I feel like I’m missing something. Let’s
say I have a HUGE json file that I import into HDFS. Does it retain it’s JSON format in
HDFS? What if it’s just random tweets I’m streaming. Is it kind of like a normal disk
where there are all kinds of files sitting on disk in their own format it’s just that in
HDFS they are spread out over nodes?
