Subject Re: Newbie: How to set up HDFS file system
Date Tue, 07 Jan 2014 14:17:42 GMT
Installing Hadoop will install HDFS, and you will need to declare storage
directories on the host nodes, etc. There is also the question of what
setup you want to use, there is what is called "pseudo-distributed" mode
where all the Hadoop daemons are running in one host.

Are you a student looking to study, or are you wanting to set up something
for work? For study, the pseudo-distributed mode is easy and can run in
virtual machines easily. You will then have access to the HDFS utility, can
set up users and directories, but do not need much resources.
