Re: HDFS using SAN

Agreed Luca, we do this to support existing customers that have requested
it and it works fine within obvious IO considerations. But not a
recommended way to do a green field deployment.

Though I don't think I'd buy a SAN for a new Hadoop cluster, we have a
SAN and are using it *instead of HDFS* with a small/medium Hadoop
MapReduce cluster (up to 100 nodes or so, depending on our need).  We
still use the local node disks for intermediate data (mapred local
storage).  Although this set-up does limit our possibility to scale to a
large number of nodes, that's not a concern for us.  On the plus, we
gain the flexibility to be able to share our cluster with non-Hadoop
users at our centre.
