Subject Re: HAWQ and Azure blob storage
Date Fri, 19 Aug 2016 02:06:37 GMT
yes, it is pretty tricky. blob store is not hdfs and people are simulating
file system interfaces on top of blob store.

hopefully, our pluggable file system design can abstract the common part
out, and add special handling for semantic differences.
