The Future of HDFS

The Future of HDFS

This IDC study assesses the use of native HDFS data stores for Hadoop infrastructure and evolution of third-party options as viable alternatives. It also examines the primary reasons for replacing or augmenting HDFS with third-party options."The total amount of all data on the planet, the global datasphere, is growing exponentially. Data will continue to drive fundamental improvements to businesses, industries, our processes, and our everyday lives. Low-cost scalability of HDFS is integral to Big Data storage and analysis," says Ritu Jyoti, research director, Storage at IDC. "While native HDFS-persistent data stores are still the preferred choice for Hadoop infrastructure, third-party options are catching up as compelling alternatives as market requirements change."
