Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-7240) Object store in HDFS
Date Fri, 20 May 2016 17:42:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-7240?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15293822#comment-15293822

Colin Patrick McCabe commented on HDFS-7240:

bq. Another question about reading the ApacheCon slides: the question "Why an Object Store"
was well answered. How about "why an object store as part of HDFS"? IIUC Ozone is only leveraging
a very small portion of HDFS code. Why should it be a part of HDFS instead of a separate project?

That's a very good question.  Why can't ozone be its own subproject within Hadoop?  We could
add a hadoop-ozone directory at the top level of the git repo.  Ozone seems to be reusing
very little of the HDFS code.  For example, it doesn't store blocks the way the DataNode stores
blocks.  It doesn't run the HDFS NameNode.  It doesn't use the HDFS client code.

> This jira proposes to add object store capabilities into HDFS. 
> As part of the federation work (HDFS-1052) we separated block storage as a generic storage
layer. Using the Block Pool abstraction, new kinds of namespaces can be built on top of the
storage layer i.e. datanodes.
> In this jira I will explore building an object store using the datanode storage, but
independent of namespace metadata.
> I will soon update with a detailed design document.
