Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-2115) Transparent compression in HDFS
Date Wed, 29 Jun 2011 17:03:28 GMT
Transparent compression in HDFS
-------------------------------

                 Key: HDFS-2115
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2115
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: data-node, hdfs client
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon


In practice, we find that a lot of users store text data in HDFS without using any compression
codec. Improving usability of compressible formats like Avro/RCFile helps with this, but we
could also help many users by providing an option to transparently compress data as it is
stored.
