Subject Importing Data into HDFS
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2012 20:58:11 GMT
Is there any way to import data into HDFS without copying it in? (kinda of
like by reference)
I'm pretty sure the answer to this is no.

What I'm looking for is something that will take existing NFS data and
access it as an HDFS filesystem.
Use case: I have existing data in a warehouse that I would like to run
MapReduce etc. on without copying it into HDFS.

If the data were in S3, could I run MapReduce on it?
