Subject Re: Need help regarding HDFS-RAID
Date Thu, 15 Sep 2011 17:06:38 GMT
We use HDFS RAID in a big way. Data older than 12 days are RAIDED using XOR
encoding (effective replication of 2.5). Data older than a few months are
raided using ReedSolomon (effective observed replication factor of 1.5).
This is running on our 60 PB size cluster for about an year now.

thanks
