> The current HDFS code typically places one replica on local rack, the second replica
on remote random rack and the third replica on a random node of that remote rack. This algorithm
is baked in the NameNode's code. It would be nice to make the block placement algorithm a
pluggable interface. This will allow experimentation of different placement algorithms based
on workloads, availability guarantees and failure models.
