Community already gone ahead with the explained HA Solution below. HDFS-1623

 Yes, there were alternative solution proposed before (using backupNode approach) as well.
like HDFS-2124,HDFS-2064. Not much work done there.

Thanks, your explanation is already helpful. If you say "the new HA
architecture", does this mean that the (older) ideas to extend the
backupnode functionality to provide (warm) standby as explained here

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4539?focusedCommentId=12674954&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-12674954

are no longer valid?


Or to come back to one of my previous questions: is replacing (now
deprecated) secondary namenodes with backup namenodes a future proof
idea, or should I maybe go for the new HA architecture right away?

thanks
