Re: updates in hdfs

HDFS does have file-append support (i.e. add data at end of a
previously closed file). HDFS does not have random-write support (i.e.
writing data at a selected offset in the file).

What is your use-case though, that you seek to do updates over files
on HDFS? Perhaps you are instead looking for HBase, which has a
slightly different way of storing things but provides updates+versions
in a way over HDFS.
