Subject Re: Upload files from any machine to HDFS
Date Thu, 08 Sep 2011 10:31:24 GMT
Vitalii's suggestion is good, but would limit to users using *nix I reckon.

If I understand your question right, you need a way via HTTP/web to
put/get files from/to users?

I'd recommend using 'Hue' [1] in that case, which brings a web
interface for Hadoop that lets users upload files/documents directly
onto the HDFS, lets an admin manage users over HDFS, and much more.
See Hue in action here:

Hue is free and open-source software that you can install Hue by
following - https://ccp.cloudera.com/display/CDHDOC/Hue+Installation

[1] - http://cloudera.github.com/hue/

P.s. There's also a platform for custom web-apps development in Hue --
Please see http://cloudera.github.com/hue for more details, downloads
and development specifics -- and
https://groups.google.com/a/cloudera.org/group/hue-user/ is where the
community is at, for further Hue-specific questions!
