Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-11503) Integrate Chocolate Cloud RS coder implementation

Hi Kai,

bq. You could contribute your native codes optimizing for ARM to the ISA-L project

I'm well aware of ISA-L, it's our main competitor :) 
At this point we are not considering open-sourcing our implementation. Actually even if we
wanted to, we are not legally allowed to do so with the whole codebase (we are using a closed
source 3rd party lib). More importantly, we want to earn money licensing our plugins. For
a small company like us, I think it would be a dangerous move to release our code. What's
your experience with ISA, what was the effect of putting the source on Github?

> Quote from Marcell on HDFS-7285:
> First of all let me introduce ourselves: we are Chocolate Cloud from Denmark, we use
erasure coding to improve storage solutions. We already have Reed-Solomon and Random Linear
Network Coding backends for Liberasurecode, and now we are at the final stage of developing
our RS plugin to HDFS-EC. The performance of our plugin is similar to ISA-L's, in some configurations
we are better, in others we are worse (our initial speed comparison charts can be found here:
https://www.chocolate-cloud.cc/Plugins/HDFS-EC/hdfs.html).
> We would like our plugin to become officially supported in Hadoop 3.0. We can already
provide a preliminary version of our (native) library and a patch with the necessary glue
code for the next alpha release.
> I'd like to know your thoughts about whether it's possible and how it could be achieved.
> P.S: I'm happy to share more details if there's interest
