Subject Re: Hadoop Namenode Failover

Hi Tibi
      To recover from a Name Node failure, the following are
the suggested approaches as of now

- Maintain a SNN which does periodic check pointing
- Make sure you configure a remote NFS mount, so you have a remote copy of
fs image on another server even if you fully lose out the running NN

There is some awesome work going on for HA within hadoop project itself,
for details
