Hi Sujee,
   HDFS today doesn't consider too much on data center level reliability (although it is supposed
to extend to data center layer in topology but never honored in replica policemen/balancer/task
scheduling policy) and performance is part of concern to cross data center (assume cross-dc
bandwidth is lower than within data center). However, in future, I think we should deliver
a solution to enable data center level disaster recovery even performance is downgrade. My
several years experience in delivering enterprise software is: it is best to let customer
to make trade-off decision on performance and reliability, and engineering effort is to provide
BTW, HDFS HA is a protection of key nodes from SPOF but not handle the whole data center shutdown.

Subject: data center aware hadoop?

HI devs
now that hfds HA is is a reality,  how about HDFS spanning multiple
data centers?  Are there any discussions / work going on in this area?

It could be a single cluster spanning multiple data centers or having
a 'standby cluster' in another data center.

curious, and thanks for your time!
