Subject Re: Questions on Namespace/namenode
Date Tue, 28 Jul 2015 08:24:49 GMT
Hi Dimitry,

Thank you for your feedback. What I am trying to achieve is multi tenancy
(torage level isolation and Resource sharing between tenants). So what I
have in mind is to have a choice if to create tenants in the same namenode,
but the namenode to have separate namespaces which would manage their block
pool individually. I am just trying to avoid the hard rule of having two
namenodes, if two namespaces are required, and to have two namespaces by
one namenode.

WDYT?
