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


are no longer valid?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?
